When kilts were first made back in the 16th century, there were no factories or manufacturing plants. Each kilt was made by hand by a tailor specifically for the man or boy who was going to wear it. Great care was taken to ensure that the kilt fit perfectly and was a proud symbol of the wearer's lineage.
The first kiltmakers were artists in their own right, but over the years, the art of kiltmaking has been largely lost. Manufacturing has shifted from the tailor shop to the factory with work being done by machines and generic styles being churned out along assembly lines. As a result, the level of quality one can expect from a kilt has sharply declined.
Scottish Kilt was founded as a return to the traditional method of quiltmaking. All of our kilts are made by hand by our team of 10 tailors out of the absolute best materials. Like the artisans of the past, we make our kilts to measure to your exact specifications. While we take the time to hand make your kilt especially for you, we can still ship it right to your door within 2 to 3 to weeks.

The kilt has evolved over the centuries with many new styles emerging over the years, and at Scottish Kilt, you'll find all of the most popular kilt designs from yesterday and today.
