These Kilts are made from the same 100% wool Tartan, woven in Scotland, by the same weaver, as the kilts used in the filming of the movie “Braveheart”! The Braveheart tartan is very rustic, woven in natural wool and earth tones believed to be authentic to that period. We have three different style Brave heart kilts; the Braveheart Ancient Kilt, the Braveheart Phillabeg (or "Little Kilt"), and the Braveheart Great Kilt.
Braveheart Ancient Kilt
Want to look just like you were in the movie? This is the same style Scottish Tartan wool kilt worn in the movie. The Braveheart Ancient Kilt is made from a long piece of single-width fabric, about 25” wide. This allows you to pleat the kilt with 2-3 yards left over that is worn over the shoulder as a sash.
Braveheart Phillabeg or "Little Kilt"
The phillabeg is an early predecessor of today’s modern kilt, dating back to at least the late 1600’s. It is simply a length of Tartan about 25” wide and about 4 yards long, loosely bunched or pleated, and held about the waist with a belt. (The Braveheart Ancient Kilt is a Phillabeg with an extra 2-3 yards of fabric attached to be worn as a sash.)
Braveheart Great Kilt
It is hard to beat a traditional great kilt, and the Braveheart tartan makes a particularly nice one. This is because the fabric is woven 61 inches wide (wider than any other tartan available). When you belt it on more than half the fabric is above the belt. This fabric can be bustled up behind you, pinned over the shoulder, or worn over both shoulders like a cloak.
