What's a leg doing in the Gifts category, you ask ?
The dark thing sticking up from the top line of the sock is our $gianach. Invented by Us, it is the answer to the storage issues that all kilt wearers have. It can hold notes, business cards, house and car keys and has the same bulk as a sgian dubh. Of course the $gianch is allowed down-town, whereas the knife would prevent you enetring most clubs and bars.
Mr B speaks.... ''Where does everything go when you're wearing a kilt ? Phone, cards, keys, coins, beer tokens ! On an informal night out, a kilt and jumper combo needs some help – even the formal jacket needs some assistance. Now, with Trewscot's newest gift, the ''$gianach'' keep credit cards, cash and keys in the top of your sock. That leaves the sporran free for the mobile (cell) phone and smash. Trust me it works.
Oh and have a good craic with the bouncers when they see there's no weapon down there.
Colour selection: black, brown, tan and..................white. See below ladies.
Girls: For that wee kilt in your wardrobe... there's a whit..
Trewscots has developed the $gianach to replace the knife down the sock .. the sgian dubh. The product name is $gianach. Why did we name it so ?
In Scots Gaelic ''sgian dubh'' translates as ''black knife. '' Remove the dubh (for black) and add ''ach'' and the new word means ''knife-y or knife-like. Perfect for this wee gift.
The $ is self explanatory.
Trewscot has taken a leaf out of the many websites showing Ikea hacks and has decided to hack our own stuff. Actually 12 year old daughter was responsible for this new product ! The 6 months to 36 months sporran makes a great ear bud holder and a gift with a difference. It can be used as a purse also if you don't fancy our tartan purses . Have any combination of leather and fur depending on the colour of your buds. ( We only had black or white for the photoshoot )

Err... probably a good few I can't think of at the moment !
This is a brand new product, the first few have just been picked up from our factory. ( That sounds very grand doesn't it ? Actually its not OUR factory; Rose is the owner. She makes for others too. Anyway you know what I mean ) The full tartan range is not with us yet just the most popular and bright ! Keep looking back over the next wee while.
Wee tartan purses, big enough for a credit card or two, notes, change, house keys.. well you know what you would put in there... a packet of polos will fit too ! Finished with our cute sporran on the front and a matching zip colour. This is a brand new product, the first few have only just been made.
