Great Kilt

Great Kilt

This is the older style of kilt made of a substantial length of plaid that must be pleated by the wearer every time it is worn. (In other words, the pleats are not sewn in.) Folding the great kilt is not that difficult and gets easier with time.

How to Fold A Great Scottish Kilt - Garb The World Style (with cats and kids)

Our great kilts have 6 or 7 yards of 60 inch wide plaid material.

Our great kilts are traditionally worn with a large sleeve shirt called a leine. (Our leine are made with nearly 6 yards of fabric--they are quite voluminous--and can be made from 100% cotton muslin, polycotton, or saffron color 100% linen.)

Great kilts require a sturdy belt so we offer kilt belts made from thick leather with an adjustable buckle.

We have several choices of plaid.

Unfortunately, we can not aquire specific tartans and we do not have the exact clan names for the plaid we have in stock. We can however, usually make matching plaid clothes for the rest of the family or clan.
