Through the mists of time the Clansmen have
worn identifying tartans originally in the form of a garment not
too dissimilar to that of a toga, known more commonly as the great
kilt. Colouring of those earlier garments were set from vegetable
dies and today termed ancient colours, providing the wearer a
more subtle hue and very suitable for day wear.
Since the banning of the tartan, George IV and Sir Walter Scott
were largely responsible for the rebirth of interest in the Highland
dress and the Victorians with their industrial revolution were
able to fix more modern vibrant colour ways to tartan designs.
Variations from these standard colourings are found in weathered
and muted shades and many clans have developed Dress and Hunting
colours and patterns. Which ever you choose we always use the
finest quality tartan cloth in our handmade kilts and all are
woven in the Highlands and Borders of Scotland.
The unique timeless elegance of the kilt and full highland dress
is loved and admired everywhere, sparking a certain"bonne
ammie" where ever it is worn. We hope to make this possible
for you to enjoy.
