Highland Outfits

The tradition of wearing Highland outfits in Scotland dates back to the sixteenth century when men called the highlanders, from northern Scotland, who spoke in Gaelic tongue wore full length garments. The Kilt Company has been manufacturing the highest quality Highland outfits made with the finest fabrics for more than twenty-five years now. The Kilt Company has the largest range of kilts and kilt accessories available in the UK. They have Highland outfit packages available that include everything from head to toe from £550.

The Highland outfit is deeply rooted in Scottish culture and has stood for honour and a sacred symbol of patriotism. Over the years the way in which kilts are made and the length of the kilt has changed. Kilts were originally hand coloured in dull brown, green, white or black unlike the multi-coloured plaids and tartan styles worn and recognized in this modern time. This style came about as dying and weaving techniques improved. It was in the 1800s when tartan patterns were developed and then became native to Scotland using tartan cloth.

Tartan patterns became a way of being recognized for a certain design, as patterns of a specific nature would identify your country of origin, family, clan or region. It wasn't until the 19th century that Highland outfits became a form of ceremonial dress, worn as formal wear, for weddings, holiday games, sporting events and during holiday celebrations.
