Kilts

KILT (fèileadh beag)

My kilts are made in the most traditional way - the method has been passed down through generations of kiltmakers

and is the only way to make traditional Scottish kilts.  A traditional kilt should be sewn by hand from start to finish,

and should have only one person making it. 

Each kilt is tailor-made to fit each individual. My kilts allow for movement of the buckle and strap, as with time

sometimes the waistline may grow or shrink. With young men, we put extra pleats under the apron of the kilt,

which gives about 3~4" of room for growth. This can be done to request, no matter the age. 

Each kilt comes with a free pair of  matching flashes.  Tartan samples available on request.
