Braveheart Ancient Kilt
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 yds 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 for a sash.)

Braveheart Great Kilt
It is hard to beat a traditional great kilt, and the Braveheart tartan makes a particularly nice one because the fabric is woven 61 inches wide (wider than any other tartan we have available). When you belt it on, more than half of the fabric is above the belt.This extra fabric can be bustled up behind you, pinned over the shoulder, or worn over both shoulders like a cloak.
