Special Order We can supply over 3,000 tartans registered with The Scottish Tartan Authority (apart from one or two modern ones which are copyright protected). These can be in any shade from ancient to modern and every stage in between. We supply these in an heavy weight 16oz cloth or a medium weight 12/13oz cloth. The cloth can be produced single width (30 inches) or double width (54-60 inches) with a minimum order quantity of only 15 metres. We have this cloth specially woven on an old loom that provides the old selvedge required for the traditional kilt. There aren't many of these looms left - but they produce wonderful cloth.

House of Edgar We supply the full range of Tartan Cloth from the House of Edgar.
Their Medium Weight (13/14 oz or 380gm) double width (approx 54ins 140cms) Kilting Tartan is made from 100% Pure New Wool on a dog cross loom that gives the traditional kilt selvedge. Always in stock are 160 Clan, 34 District tartans - including their Monarch of the Glen tartan. They also have an Old and Rare Collection of 400 lesser-known tartans that are generally available. As only small quantities of these tartans are kept in stock they are not always immediately available. If they are on "back order" you may have to wait a week or two for delivery. This is a useful service as it means that you can buy a few metres without having to commission a special weave.
