If you can’t find the tartan you are looking for, please contact us directly as we offer a large selection of tartans (special weave tartans included) which we are ready to get for you.
Please be aware that as the kilt has to be made to order in your chosen tartan, it may take up to 8 weeks to complete. The time scale for creating a special weave tartan and having it made into a bespoke kilt can be anything from 4 to 6 months.
There are no laws stopping one from wearing other clans, district or regiment tartan; only restricted, copyrighted tartans are affected. And that only affects the people weaving or selling the cloth, not the people wearing it. Legally speaking, nowadays it is less about who has the right to wear a tartan and more about who has the right to sell it. Restricted tartans are usually designed from the following categories: trade, fashion, corporate. The full list of restricted tartans is available on the Scottish Tartan Register's website: http://www.tartanregister.gov.uk Although it still divides opinion, most people now do feel free to wear whichever tartan they please, and legally speaking there is no impediment to this. The main concern, of course, regards good and bad taste, and most people now do realize that this will involve balancing the choice of a tartan you find attractive, with ensuring you do not inadvertently cause hurt or bad feeling by wearing the tartan of a clan or a regiment (for example) to which you have no association.
Anyone is allowed to submit an application in order to register a new tartan in the Scottish Register of Tartans. However, there are some conditions that both the applicant and tartan itself need to fulfill.
