Austria and Italy

For 7 weeks in July and August, two fashion and design students from Austria and one from Florence have been with me. They have been learning about the tailored kilt, the tartan and other aspects of the Highland attire for men and women. They learned about the tailoring techniques – the stitches and use of the steam, rebuilt a kilt, made the Little Tailored Kilt for a toddler, tartan ties and bow ties, the lattice knotted stoles and the purled fringed plaids, training and demonstrations aids for my tourist presentations and training workshops, also learned how to use the 100 year old cylinder sock machines and managed to turn a heel. A wonderful and helpful experience for both the intern and me.

Berlin

In 2015, A young tailor from Berlin who had just finished his three year apprenticeship as a bespoke gentleman’s tailor came to Askival of Strathearn for a 3 month apprenticeship to learn about the bespoke tailored kilt.
We also had the wonderful opportunity to share this experience and become friends with a local retired bespoke tailor who comes from a dynasty of tailors.
We have been able to discuss the tailoring processes and techniques with fresh eyes, with an aim to clarify and develop understanding, knowledge and skills and in turn, enable others to learn the craft of kilt making with a good degree of understanding.
