About US

 Twenty Five years ago in 1991, I started a business that out of humble beginnings has blossomed into a growing business. What started as making kilts for my daughter’s Highland dance outfits now getting to do what I love, dress individuals in Highland attire.  I have made kilts for individuals just discovering their heritage, to Clan Chiefs in full regalia. Some of my better known clients are: Chief David Rose the 26th Baron of Kilravock Chief of Clan Rose, President of Clan MacFarlane Michael MacFarlane, President of Clan MacKenzie James Mounce,  J. Howard Standing California Tartan Designer & first Californian Tartan Kilt, Army Rangers, Navy Seals, A Marine Corps General, Hollywood Actors, Police Depts, Fire Depts,  Border Patrol, and multiple Highland Games Chieftains.

 While the vast majority of my 1600 Customers and many more Kilts, fall somewhere in the middle, my passion and expertise is dressing Highland Competitors;  Drum Majors, Solo Competitors and Entire Bands. Cameron Highlanders of San Diego(25 years), Glendora High School Pipe Band, Turlach UR of Iowa Pipe Band, Drum Major Ken Misch, Drum Major Craig Stevens,  Solo Competitor Richard King, Solo Competitor Alex Gandy, Solo Competitor Austin Diepenhorst and many others.

 This website is a natural progression of my desire to better serve the Celtic Community.  I have worked very hard in sourcing not only accurate items but items that are high end quality, this is evident across the site.  The Feathers we stock are Military Spec from the manufacturer who supplies them to the UK Military. The cloth in my Kilts comes from UK Mills and are verified by the Lord Lyon as accurate.  The Sgian Dubh’s are Sheffield Steel.  My vendors that are not based in the UK are personally selected and located in the US and Canada.

In addition to selling products, I also do alterations and restorations on many types of Celtic Clothing.  I have restored many Kilts that are family heirlooms to like new condition. My job as a Kiltmaker/Clothier is helping individuals wear historically accurate clothing that honors your ancestors or organization. I am more than willing to offer advice and options in your personal dress selection.  

 I have worked very hard to make https://mykiltmaker.com/ a self-service site.  As Long as you know your last name, have a cloth tape measure….you can order yourself a complete outfit or any accessory. But if you find yourself with too many options, please feel free to message me! I fully understand that some family trees are complicated and further assistance is needed.   The best ways to contact me are Facebook Messenger or E-mail.
