History of Tartan kilt
Tartan belongs to Scottish culture and is not only one of Scotland’s greatest icons but also one of the world’s leading national marks of identification. Traditional kilts are designed and woven with this heritage in mind to create an authentic look that’s perfect for formal events, social gatherings, weddings and more.
There is estimated to be up to 5,000 different tartans in existence, with about 150 new designs created annually! Originally, tartans were constructed using woven wool, although now they are made with a variety of materials. Alternating bands of colored threads criss-cross perpendicularly to one another, and are woven in such a way that causes diagonal lines to form where different colors cross. This gives an illusion of new colors, although they are actually just a result of the crossing of the threads.
Tartan is a historically and culturally significant pattern that is made of up crossing horizontal and vertical bands or threads of colours.Tartans were historically made with woven wool; however, today they can consist of most other materials.
It is estimated that there are nearly 7,000 different tartans that exist, with around 150 new ones created each year. We are adding new tartans in our inventory and also accept custom orders. Browse our collection of tartans and orders yours!
