The kilt is a native dress of Scotland. It is called Feileadh in Gaelic. Its feature is to roll a large cloth like a skirt around the waist. But, the kilt is traditional dress for Highlander men (people from the Scottish Highlands), but not for women.

In the past, wearing kilts had been prohibited for political reasons by England, in order to control the revolution in Scotland.

Now, people wear the kilt at festivals, and also woman wear them too. The kilt is the identity and pride of Scotland.
