Bespoke kilts

The creation of an Askival of Strathearn bespoke kilt is the first of many milestones on its life journey. At this stage, there is attentiveness to craftsmanship and future proofing and then to be safely delivered to you as your doughty companion through life’s many memorable events.

Restorations, alterations, mending, and cleaning of the kilt.

My understanding of the kilt’s construction and my tailoring skills enable me to refit, restore or reconstruct your elderly or slightly damaged kilt to as near its former glory as is practicably possible, allowing you to enjoy the company of your beloved kilt for many years to come.

Here at the Askival of Strathearn studio, I run courses using the traditional tailoring processes and techniques as applied to kilt tailoring. You will learn tailoring fundamentals and understand the construction of the kilt which will enable you to develop your knowledge and skills in kilt making, restoration, and alteration.
