  Frequently asked questions

Before purchasing kilts, I am often asked these three questions:

1. Do I have a family tartan?
If you do, I will be able to find it for you. If you do not, you can choose from thousands of tartans. Please see the "Find your family tartan" link below for more information.

2. How long does it take for a kilt to be made?
If the cloth is in-stock at the mill, it can be made in 2-3 weeks. If it is out-of-stock, it may be that it is a "special weave" or rare tartan, which take from 3 to 6 months to be woven to order. If this is the case, I will discuss this with you, and suggest alternatives if this is impractical.

3. How much does it cost for a gents/ladies kilt/full outfit?
Please see the relevant pages - such as Gents outfits or Ladies outfits.

What is the difference between the ancient, modern, hunting, dress, and weathered? Most tartans fall into one of the falling categories.

Soft and lighter colours.
Tend to be strong, dark colours, although some are lighter. Usually they are quite plain.
Either of the above kinds of tartan, but they tend to have lots of green through them.
Any of the above, with lots of white through it.
Reproduction colours simulate the look of older cloth, weathered by the elements.
This guide will help you choose the perfect shade for the perfect kilt.
