Traditional 8 Yard Kilt

£500.00

From the tartan mill to your doorstep, our 8 yard kilts are 100% Scottish made with love and passion. The process starts in the north of Scotland at our tartan mill in Keith where 100% pure wool yarn is died and woven into the finest 13oz tartan in the world. It then moves to Perth where the tartan is measured, checked for imperfections, cut and marked ready for our kilt makers to work their magic. Next it’s off to Paisley where our makers with over 100 years of experience between them hand stitch your kilt the traditional way. Finally it’s back to Perth for a final inspection before being shipped to you anywhere in the world.

8 Yard kilts

While kilts can be made from more or less material, 8 yards is the traditional length. The end result, when made with a medium weight tartan (13oz), is perfect for every occasion. An ideally weighted kilt that hangs perfectly that can be worn all day in comfort.

Our Tartan Mill

The mill was founded in Dumfriesshire more than 200 years ago, in the fortified tower which still features on the company logo today. It started out with only four looms and a handful of local workers, but due to its significant growth under the management of the Macnaughton family, the business was relocated to Keith in the early 1970s.

Once woven, all our fabrics are hand inspected at least twice, with any flaws or missing threads being corrected by our highly skilled team of hand menders. Only once our discerning menders are happy, will we allow the fabric to proceed to finishing.

The finishing process allows us to finally “tweek” our fabrics, by dyeing, washing and pressing them to provide the finish specified by our design team.

One of a Kind

We love one of a kind items. It's what led us to start Artisans of Scotland in the first place. There is nothing better than to know the hands of the person who made an item specially for you, and even better when its a one of a kind item made to your design.

Whether you want to tweak the colours of a kilt or create something truly unique, our tartan design service is here to help. It all starts with choosing specific threads and ends with a beautiful one of a kind kilt. It also doesn't have to break the bank.
