Ancient Kilts made from officially licensed OUTLANDER: The Series Tartans! The same 100% premium wool tartan fabric, woven by the same weaver in Scotland, as the tartans used in the making of OUTLANDER: The Series. Now you can wear your very own OUTLANDER Kilt! The OUTLANDER tartans are woven as a hopsack plain weave with a wash only to give it that natural look. The weight of the wool is 12oz with a kilting selvedge. The tartan is woven in Scotland, the kilts are made by us in the USA. What is an Ancient Kilt? The Ancient Kilt was popularized by the movie Braveheart. Compared to the Great Kilt (worn in OUTLANDER: The Series) which is made from double-width tartan (up to 60 inches wide), the Ancient Kilt is made from a longer piece of single-width tartan (up to 30 inches wide).This means you don't have the bulk of fabric above the belt that you would with a Great Kilt. Instead, the Ancient Kilt is made with an extra length of 2-3 yards of tartan, an integral part of the kilt, that becomes a plaid when fastened over your shoulder. Why an Ancient Kilt instead of a Great Kilt? For one thing they're less expensive, because they're made from less tartan. For another, they are a lot cooler to wear in hot weather. You'll want a Great Kilt if you want your kilt to look just like the kilts in OUTLANDER: The series. However, if you live in Texas, or you plan to wear your kilt to a Ren-Fest in mid-summer heat anywhere but Alaska, you'll appreciate the lighter, cooler, Ancient Kilt. (Or if you're a "human furnace" like me, consider an OUTLANDER Phillabeg lighter and cooler yet!) Just like in OUTLANDER: The Series, the Ancient Kilt is traditionally pleated each time you wear it. Pleating instructions will be included with your kilt (you can also download them here). Basically, you lay your kilt out on clean ground, the floor, or a bed. Pull fabric into pleats until it is nearly all used, leaving just enough to wrap around you. Then the whole works is held around you with your belt. NOTE - We ask for size information to be sure that your kilt will fit you correctly, but we do not pleat the kilt for you unless you select Cheater Pleats as an option. Special order. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. We try to keep the OUTLANDER tartans in stock at all times, but if the tartan you have chosen is temporarily out of stock, you may need to wait up to 8 weeks for delivery. We will contact you if we expect any delays.

Ancient Kilts made from the officially Licensed OUTLANDER: The Series Poly/Viscose Tartans! These poly/viscose tartans are a wool-free version of the tartans created for, and worn by your favorite characters, in OUTLANDER The Series! Now you can have your very own OUTLANDER poly/viscose kilt! Whether you are allergic to wool, or just want a great looking tartan for less than premium wool, our OUTLANDER synthetic blend is a great way to go! Our Poly/Viscose Tartan is hard wearing and cool to wear. To the untrained eye it is nearly indistinguishable from expensive 100% wool tartan. The OUTLANDER tartans are woven as a hopsack plain weave with a wash only, to give it that natural look. The weight of the fabric is 12oz, with a kilting selvedge. The tartan is woven in the UK, and each OUTLANDER poly/viscose Ancient Kilt is custom-made by us in the USA. What is an Ancient Kilt? The Ancient Kilt was popularized by the movie Braveheart.

How is an Ancient Kilt different?

The Ancient Kilt is basically a Phillabeg with an extra 2-3 yards of tartan attached. The extra tartan is there to be worn as a sash or a fly plaid, once the kilt is pleated. It differs from the Great Kilt because it is made from a longer piece of single width fabric (25 – 30 inches wide). This means you don’t have the bulk of fabric above the belt that you would with a Great Kilt. (Great Kilts are made from double-width fabric, 54-60 inches wide). Normally, you pleat the kilt each time you wear it, and, like the great kilt, the only thing that holds it together is your belt. As a convenient option though, we can sew the pleats in place for you with Cheater Pleats™.

Cheater Pleats™

Wearing it the old fashioned way is nice, but if you don’t want to have to pleat your Ancient Kilt every time you wear it we will pleat it for you and stitch in a hidden waistband to hold it all in place for an additional $50. This makes it much easier to wear and no one will even know you didn’t pleat it yourself! To assist in getting and keeping the kilt on we can add a leather strap and a buckle inside the kilt for just $15 more. The strap is hidden out of sight and allows you to tighten up the inside of the apron so you are not as dependent upon your belt to hold it all together. It’s not necessary but it is really convenient, and is well worth the extra $15 if you are getting the Cheater Pleats™ anyways.

Tartan Options

Please see our tartan page for fabric descriptions and our list of available tartans. Please allow 2 – 4 weeks delivery for stock tartans (homespun and braveheart). If you need it faster than that please contact us as we can sometimes rush stock orders. Please allow 6 – 12 weeks delivery for all other tartans.

Measurement Instructions

1) Measure comfortably around your waist where you normally wear your pants.

2) Measure around your hips at the fullest point (usually about 6” below the waist)

3) Measure from your waist to about the middle of the knee. It is best if you have help, because bending even slightly will change the measurement.

4) Your height.

 Our goal is to make the ordering of your kilt as stress free and enjoyable as possible and we look forward to handling your order. Please enjoy our extensive online catalog of Tartan Fabrics, Highland Accessories, Kilt Accessories, Kilt Jackets, Kilt Clothing, and other quality Celtic products.
