If you have questions, we have answers. Many people are interested in kilts, and all things Celtic, but are unsure of the history of this famous garment. Read on for some answers to our most commonly asked questions.
While traditionally, men wore kilts and women wore kilted skirts, the distinction has diminished over time. So if you want your daughter to wear a kilt, don't feel that she should miss out. We tend to think of kilts as the Scottish garment, but really, it's more about the pattern and style.
We recommend taking your child's size and adding an inch or two to these measurements for custom kilts. Because kids grow so fast, it is common for them to grow a few inches by the kilt is made and sent. If you add a few inches to the measurements, the kilt will fit better longer. We offer our Right Fit™ Guarantee. Contact us within 30 days of receiving your order for alterations.
A kilt is a versatile garment to wear. There's no hard-and-fast rule as to length, so you may initially prefer to buy a slightly larger kilt for your child to grow into. It may be too large at first, but you'll love watching your wee one grow into their kilt.
We do, and your wee one will shine while showing their heritage. Of course, the pleat effect might not look quite as stylish on a crawling baby as it would on a child who is confident in walking. But we do make a selection of babywear, always remembering that comfort and safety are paramount when dressing infants.
We use American sizing and measurements (inches, yards, rather than centimeters) for our clothing and accessories. So when you check out our sizes, please bear that in mind.
We offer a variety of fabrics to suit your needs. If you are looking for a hypoallergenic material, we recommend and offer poly/viscose.
There's a reason Highlanders liked to wear the kilts so much! These garments were not just stylish but practical and comfortable. Your child will enjoy the freedom of movement while wearing the kilt! We use soft, homespun wool, or poly-viscose materials in our kilts.
If there's a spillage, wipe it up immediately. You can handwash with a wool-safe detergent and hang to dry. You can also take your child's kilt to the dry cleaner. If you take it to the dry cleaner, make sure that you tell them how the cleaner how they should iron the pleats. Additionally, harsh chemicals should be avoided on leather accents and straps.
