Scottish Folk Costume

Scottish kilt

Scottish kilt

My image of Scotland is kilts, the folk costume of Scottish men. When I saw a man who wore kilts, I thought he was disguised in woman’s clothes. Kilts look like Japanese girl’s high school uniforms, so I felt it was strange.

Then I researched about kilts. A kilt is one big piece of cloth. So, it’s very useful, because it can be a skirt, blanket, and shawl. And it has the tartan pattern.

Kilts were wore by Scottish men in the war in the 18th century in Scotland. Before that, kilts were already their folk costume. Since then, kilts became a symbol of the Scottish regiment.

Now, not only Scottish men, but also women wear kilts. It’s not worn in wars any more, but it’s worn at events or festivals.

After this research, I realized some good points of kilts, like its usefulness and cuteness of the pattern. I want to try it!
