Traditional 13 oz 8 Yard Handmade Kilt – District


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.

Each kilt is handmade to order with current lead times being 8-12 weeks. Please get in touch if you require your kilt for a specific date and we will try our best to accommodate.

Need help with measurements for your kilt? Check out our comprehensive measuring guide here

We use your full height to double check the kilt measurements you give us. Most of our kilt makers have been making kilts for decades so can quickly tell if a set of measurements your provide looks wrong based on the persons height.

Measure around your waist 1″ (approx 2 fingers) above the navel

Measure around the fullest part of the seat/hips, place three fingers inside the tape to avoid getting this measurement too tight.

From your navel to half way across your knee cap. Stand upright, looking straight ahead with feet together.

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.
