Our drummers plaid is made from 2 1/2 yards of tartan. It features hand braided fringe.
This is a CUSTOM product that cannot be returned. We MUST know if you're matching another garment. Delivery approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Please state tartan, shade and weight of cloth.
The plaid originates from the historic Great Kilt worn by a highlander.
The tartan fabric would serve both as a blanket and bedding to sleep with, and also as clothing to wear during the day. The tartan was wrapped around the waist and folded in a "pleat-like" style which was held in place by a belt. The material that was left over from the waist was then thrown over the left shoulder.
Today, we honor this historic garment by wearing a plaid of matching tartan which is held in place by a decorative brooch.
