Kung hei fat choy!

By USA Kilts January 31, 2014

Kung hei fat choy, friends! In honor of the Chinese New Year holiday today, we're eating Chinese food for lunch and sharing the "Chinese Scottish" tartan on our page. Notes from the Tartan Register on this tartan:

 

The Chinese Scottish tartan was originally created to signify the special relationship that exists between Scotland and China and between the Scots and the Chinese community in Scotland. The inspiration for this tartan came from Madam Guo Guifang, Chinese Consul General, who once spoke of the unique Scottish tartan as one of the major tourist attractions for the Chinese and suggested the idea of creating a specific tartan for the Chinese people. Designed by Heather Yellowley of the Strathmore Woollen Company of Forfar and facilitated by Angus Council and the Scottish Tartans Authority, the tartan incorporates the colours of the Scottish Saltire together with the red and yellow of the Chinese flag. These are interwoven with green bands to symbolize the great co-operation between Scottish and Chinese botanists in the Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh - home to the world's largest collection of Chinese plants outside China itself. The yellow crosses the red in five places which signifies the five stars of the Chinese Flag, the biggest and brightest being represented by the yellow cross in the middle of the red. The tartan was presented to Madam Guo on 6th April 2006 as part of the Tartan Day Celebrations which took place in the Scottish county of Angus.



For those interested, we CAN make this into a 5 Yard Wool Kilt or Premier 8 Yard kilt.

Fun on a snowy day...

GREAT Deal on Ex Rental Kilts!

By USA Kilts January 2, 2014

OK, so here's the deal.  USA Kilts started a rental program 2 years ago, using 3 of our tartans:  Sterling, American Heritage and Celtic Nations.  Over the course of the 2 years of renting kilts and packages, we've learned a few things.  


1.  The Sterling tartan is the tartan that rents 9 times out of 10 b/c the colors are neutral.  American Heritage and Celtic Nations don't rent nearly as well.


2.  We don't like doing rentals!


With that said, we are going to eventually get out of the rental business (in the next year or two), but we have to whittle down the rental kilt inventory first.  Below are the 2 tartans we will be selling and the sizes / quantities of each kilt.  Each kilt has slightly longer than average leather straps which accommodate a 5" waist span.  There are NO RETURNS on these kilts, so be sure to measure before ordering.


Ideally, we would like to sell these kilts en mass to a new pipe band looking to outfit everyone (with a few kilts to spare) OR to an existing band who wants to change their tartan.  We're offering a GREAT deal on kilts that were very lightly used (several have NEVER been rented), though we will sell these to individuals as well.  These kilts are ALL 8 Yard Wool kilts, made in Scotland.


Prices:


For 1 kilt, the price is $350 per 8 yard kilt.

For 6 kilts or more, the price is $290 per kilt.

If you're a pipe band looking to clear us out of EVERY size of one of these 2 patterns, the kilts are $230 each (and we'll throw in the kilt hangers).


Shipping will be charged at cost (and is free to orders of 20 or more kilts)
