well made kilt should last a life time and keeping that
in mind, our kilts are made from the finest 100% wool
tartan available. We work with the foremost
weaving companies in Scotland and Canada to bring you a
large selection of authentic tartans.
we've decided together which tartan is 'yours' and which
weight of cloth works for you, we'll look at the
different colours your tartan is available in - ancient,
dress, modern or hunting and then, YOU choose how you'd
like your kilt to be pleated i.e. showing the pattern of
the kilt all around the kilt is "pleating to the
SETT". "Pleating to the STRIPE" ( shown
below) means that a dominant stripe in the pattern is
centered in each pleat so the kilt is different in
the back from the front.
With proper measuring, we guarantee that your custom
kilt will fit you 'like a glove'. We require waist, hip
and length measurements and though I prefer to take
these myself, this is not always possible. Proper
measurement taking is really important, but anyone can
do it. We'll send you step-by-step instructions on how
to take these 3 simple measurements - all you need is a
cloth measuring tape!.
don't skimp on fabric and we'll use as much fabric as
needed to create the deep pleats in the traditional
kilts. The first
and last pleats are made extra deep - we can use this
fabric should the kilt need to be made larger.
vegetable dye leather kilt straps are cut and sewn on by
hand. Our leather is produced in the ancient way
of immersing a hide in a bath of oak bark and water.
The process takes several days. The result is a
gorgeous deep, black, low sheen leather that works with
