Scotland skirt - kilt
Scotland is one of the four areas of Britain and is located in the British Isles. It has a population of nearly 511 million. The unique highland scenery, small lakes, and beautiful mountains will leave you with an unforgettable impression.
When I heard the country Scotland, the first thing coming into my mind is the special traditional clothes. The kilt is a very traditional kind of clothes in Scotland. But it is not usually seen in daily life.
Visitors are more likely to see kilt-wearers at formal celebrations such as weddings and at Highland Games or similar gatherings. And although the kilt is typically regarded as being Highland dress, more kilts are now worn in the Lowland cities than in the Highlands.
Modern kilts have up to eight metres of material which is thickly pleated at the back and sides, with the pleats stitched together only at the waistband. Fashion designers have also tried to update the kilt and make it appeal to a wider audience by using non-tartan designs such as camouflage and material such as leather.
