What is a kilt pin?

Have you ever worn a kilt on a windy day? Yes, we all have, and it can be quite nerving worrying about becoming the next Marilyn Monroe. Therefore, we recommend that you wear a piece of jewelry called a kilt pin on the lower corner of the outer apron of your kilt. The kilt pin adds weight to the outer apron, this prevents the apron blowing open and showing off too much leg. You may also wear a kilt pin purely as a form of decoration, so pick a kilt pin that represents you!

The Stag in Celtic Culture

In early history, the Celts saw the stag as a powerfully strong animal. In order to become a leader, one had to hunt and kill a stag using only a knife made from a stag’s horn. Candidates completed this rite in order to gain the wisdom and strength necessary to lead.

Celts have been depicting the stag on their artifacts since as early as the 4th Century BCE. To this day, traditional Scottish dancers often imitate stags by stretching out their arms over their heads like antlers, and forming horns with their fingers. This buckle exemplifies the importance of the stag in Scottish culture. By wearing it, one pays homage to long standing Celtic tradition.
