There are many different kinds of kilts, ranging from modern kilts using contemporary materials to traditional ones made from wool. Not only are traditional kilts made from wool, they are made using eight yards of heavyweight tartan cloth. This cloth then gets hand pleated and hand stitched. When a kilt is made in this traditional way, it helps to preserve the art of traditional kilt making as well as the culture that surrounds traditional kilt wearing. There are a number of reasons why traditional kilt lovers prefer this sort of kilt over a more casual or lightweight one, and that is just one reason.
Traditionally, each kind of kilt was made by hand which is a long process that takes an average of 15 hours to create a single garment. But that is part of the appeal of the traditional kilts that Scottish Kilt makes. Customers have often given compliments regarding how nice they feel wearing a kilt that they know traditional kilt makers have created, giving them a sense of connection to their Scottish culture and heritage. Hand-stitched kilts are clearly superior to kilts that are made by machines, adding a more noticeable, visible difference as well as the knowledge that what you are wearing is made with supreme quality and love.
