Handmade Kilts

All our kilts are made in Scotland from 100% wool. We have access to a huge number of tartans as our tartan comes from five different weavers. The main four weave the tartan in Scotland and the fifth in Yorkshire.

Your Choice of Tartan​

If the tartan of your choice is not a tartan which the weavers normally produce, then we can get it woven to order.

All our kilts are made in the traditional way with at least 8 yds of tartan being used (depending on the wearer’s size).

Made to the highest standard

All kilts are entirely hand sewn. As every kilt is made for an individual customer it can be pleated to set or stripe.

If you have questions about your kilt then have a look at our Kilt FAQs or drop us an email.

Kilt FAQs

It is best to leave 6-8 weeks for a kilt outfit. If you need it more quickly than that, just let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

The simple answer is no, it all depends on how they have been constructed at the time they were originally made.

If you are lucky enough to own one of our kilts then this can be altered.

We would need to see a kilt first to determine whether it can be altered.

No. We offer a personalised serive tailored to your needs. We want to ensure you get the finest kilt outfit that fits your budget.

To produce a competitive package would result in us producing a poorer quality outfit.

There is a vast range of kilt accessories available and we prefer to allow our customers to choose items they particularly like, in order to create an outfit more personal to them.

We stock high quality products and where possible source these from within Scotland, thus insuring that we are supporting local industry.

All our jackets, kilts, sporrans, socks, sgian dubhs, kilt pins and belts are made in Scotland.

Its best to hang your kilt up when its not in use. Ideally using a clamp type hanger, where possible the clamp should be put through both belt loops but at least one, this helps ensure that the kilt doesn’t slip. We sell the “Kilter”, which is an ideal way of storing your kilt and all the accessories in one place, this is great if you travel with your kilt as it ensures that you don’t forget anything and your kilt, jacket etc are all kept in perfect condition.

The kilt pin is attached to the front apron of the kilt on the right had side. It does not pin the front apron to the rest of the kilt as this restricts movement and will damage the kilt. It is personal choice as to whether the pin is vertical or at an angle.

A kilt belt is normally worn, unless you are wearing a waistcoat, in which case a belt should not be worn.

There are various options for travelling. We sell a kilt roll which can either be bought on its own or as part of the highland wardrobe. This is a soft piece of luggage. We recommend that the kilt is removed from the roll once you arrive at your destination, as the pleats will become misshapen if the kilt is left rolled for long periods of time. The other type of luggage we have is the “Kilter” which is more like a suit case and is better in situations where there are no space constraints.

The kilt sits above your hip bone, so quite a bit higher than where trousers normally sit.

The lower edge of the kilt shouldn’t be any lower than the middle of the knee cap.

With the pleats at the back, do up the left hand buckle followed by the right hand buckle (or buckles).

NB: Left/right side refers to that of the person wearing the kilt.

The buckles need do be reasonably tight to stop the kilt from slipping down. If there are two buckles on the right hand side, the lower one shouldn’t be too tight – it should be just enough to take up the slack.
