  • Product Description

    A traditional draped garment found in women's’ highland dress. Typically consisting of two to four yards of tartan material wrapped around the waist and/or shoulders, with some left loose for covering the head. The Earasaid was typically pleated around the waist and held in place with a belt, just like a man's great kilt. Often it was also pinned by a brooch at the chest.

    This utilitarian yet elegant garment came into being in the late 1500's and stayed relatively mainstream until the late 1740's. It emerged from the leine and brat (cloak) that was worn by highland women from the 1300's to 1500's. It was during the early 1500's that the feile mhor (great kilt) or feile breacan (belted plaid) began to emerge and gain popularity among Scottish men. This led to Scottish Highland women designing their own style of belted plaid ... the Earasaid.

    More then expected. My wife Loves it. The mill wasn't doing 11oz so USA Kilts shipped the heavier weight. No extra charge. We will be doing more business with USA Kilts. (Posted on 6/1/2022)

    Product description was very accurate. We ordered 2yrd and received just that. I ordered the hemmed ends for versatility of the cloth. As expected the hems were crafted in quality.
    Shipping was exceptional! 3 days from Shipped to on the porch....East coast to West coast.
    The colors were darker than I expected. The tartan is Lamont, in modern from Loch. The blue is almost black, but in good sunlight you can see the difference between them.
    All in all, I say a good purchase! And no I didn't give 5's, based on the simplicity of the order. Had it arrived ahead of the expected date then it would have gotten 5's! (Posted on 3/31/2022)

    My Earasaid in 11 oz wool is a beautiful thing. The fabric is smooth, soft to the touch, and in that weight has a lovely drape. I'm so glad USA Kilts is so fast - it's perfect for the winters here and perfect for the holidays. (Posted on 11/12/2021)

    I purchased the MacTavish tartan earasaid in the 2 yard. Gorgeous, bright coloring and soft and durable. It will be perfect for wearing to Scotfest! Swift emails back when you contact them as well. (Posted on 7/8/2021)

    The colors are vibrant and rich; they certainly have a "quality" feel. The weave is much tighter than I thought would be accomplished but, this is by no means a bad thing. The wool weight was perfect for my wife; she gets chilled easily and this wool has been keeping her nicely warm without feeling heavy after wearing it for a while. Overall, I'm quite pleased and I think the guys have a great option here. (Posted on 6/3/2021)

    The earasaid is absolutely beautiful and I get so many compliments! The item shipped way faster than I was quoted, customer service was quick to reply, and the earasaid was priced better than identical products from different sellers. I could not be more thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend USA Kilts! (Posted on 2/26/2021)

    I ordered this in Lamont Ancient and am floored at how beautiful it is. The fabric is very soft, just as soft as a merino dress that I have, and is very lightweight, perfect for a warmer climate. I could not be happier with it and would love to be able to order a heavier weight earasaid for cold weather too! (Posted on 2/16/2021)

    I couldn't resist trying on this earasaid when I received it today. I'm wearing it now and I LOVE IT! I'll use this for years to come at Scottish events and when I play the lyre for others. (Posted on 2/8/2021)

How to Wear an Earasaid:


1) Lay the material flat on the ground.
2) Starting length-wise, kneel at one end
3) Leaving about 9 inches flat on one side, begin pleating every 4”-6” for 2 -3.5 yards until about 9 inches remain on the far side.
4) Slide a belt under the material at what will be about waist height when you are lying down. Make sure it is perpendicular to the pleated area of the Earasaid. (Some do this as step one to avoid ruining the pleats.)
5) Lie down on your pleated and unbelted Earasaid with pleats parallel and vertical
6) Begin to wrap the material over your body by pulling the unpleated ends around your waist.
7) Fasten the belt
8) From this step on it is entirely optional on how to complete the wear of the garment.
    A: It can be worn with the top half hanging freely at the waist.
    B: It can be worn with the top half loosely tucked in at the belt.
    C: It can be worn with the top half draped freely over the shoulders.
    D: It can be worn with the top half pinned with a brooch at the chest.
