The world's last specialist mill weaving only authentic traditional quality tartans.
We'll weave ANY tartan, in pure new wool or silk... even for one garment!
NEW: Tartan Library
We are excited to launch the world's largest tartan reference resource, our exclusive Tartan Library.
For the first time ever, you can now view every known tartan, realistically displayed in every woven colourway. Or just ask for your own special version!
All our tartans are made with a traditional natural or kilting selvedge. This is impossible on the high speed 'rapier' looms used elsewhere. It gives all our tartans the clean cut edge on both sides that is vital for a truly authentic kilt and other quality uses.
Our tartans are more densely woven than is usual at other mills, for a luxuriously superfine finish and an extremely durable fabric. Our single and double width looms create tartans of around 29 inches (74cm) and 56 inches (142 cm) wide respectively. We can weave as little as four yards (3.7m) at single width, with 16 yards (14.6m) minimum at double width (and five yards /4.6m for spun silk).

Dancers' Dress Tartans
We stock the world's largest range of traditional dancers' tartans. Woven in proper wool our fabrics give competition-grade pleats and durability far superior to materials like merino.
We also tailor dancers' kilts, to the correct specifications.
We weave superb quality silk in any tartan. And our luxurious silk sashes are individually hand-woven.
Our expert seamstresses will produce men's and ladies' accessories in your silk.
We also supply from stock our exclusive Reproduction Tartans. These are authentic in shades and design to those worn before 1745.
The soft muted colourings are reminiscent of the old vegetable sources for dyes such as lichen, moss, and alder bark.
Kilts & Products
Our own master kiltmakers hand-sew both traditional kilts, and dancers' kilts.
We also produce accessories including shawls, scarves, ties, plaids, and cummerbunds.
