The Great Kilt is a true symbol of the Highlands and of Scotland.
Known in Gaelic as the feileadh mor (Feileadh Mòr), this is the big kilt you see wrapped around Scottish Highlanders of the 16th through the 18th centuries. It has picked up many pop-culture names over the years.
In reality, the Scottish great kilt is just a large piece of tartan cloth (if someone offers you a great kilt for sale and it is pre-pleated, watch out!). The trick to wearing one lies in learning how to pleat it around your torso and fix it in place with a plaid brooch and kilt belt. Our 16 oz. wool great kilt and 13 oz wool great kilt are each sourced from the best tartan mills in Scotland and are available in your choice of tartan sett. If you want something a little lighter weight for summer festivals, check out our 11oz great kilt.
Is this the kilt I see people wearing as a Renn Faire Kilt?
Yes. Though not every renaissance kilt is worn authentically and practice putting it on is crucial. Decide if you want to create a fantasy Celtic warrior look (like for a LARP) or a historically accurate Highlander or Jacobite look. Then practice before you go to faire!
Can I get an Outlander kilt, Braveheart kilt, Rob Roy kilt or Highlander kilt?
Yes because they are all essentially the same garment, just known popularly by the movie or TV series title. Of all of these, we are most pleased with the research that went into the costumes of the Outlander series. Very authentic look!
How do I find my family great kilt?
Just click on the tartan picker link and do a search on your name. We will provide you with a custom great kilt. That means it will be in any tartan you like. Remember that most Clan tartans were not registered until the early 19th century, so don’t worry too much about having an exact tartan for a historical costume or impression. In most of history, you just wore the tartan your wife had woven for you during the winter.
