Cornish Tartan Kilt | Length You Prefer - Design You Like!
Posted by coleenstela on September 9th, 2018
The kilt an ancient and noble garment remnant of the early Celtic race of Caledonia. These are some of the pervading attitudes that one might encounter at the various Scottish festivals and Highland Games around the country today. Of course, ask an Irishman, and he will tell you that the kilt was actually an ancient garment from Ireland and only later brought into Scotland by migrating Gaels, and moreover the Irish also invented the bagpipes, whisky, and whatever else you care to name. Ask an Englishman and he will tell you how Thomas Rawlinson, an English native, invented the kilt in the 18th century! Most of our ideas about the kilt are based on myth, legend, misconceptions, and (worse yet) Hollywood. Braveheart may get your blood up but depict anything remotely like historically accurate costuming it does not. I will attempt here to present the reader with some hard, solid facts about just when and where the kilt was developed (and when and where it was not), focusing mostly on the pre-seventeenth century period.
Reminiscent of a beautiful spring day, the Cornish Tartan is full of earthy, sunny colors that are sure to brighten up any gray afternoon. This tartan's primary color is a sunshine yellow that is present in thick, prominent lines. Running through the yellow, there are light, sky blue squares that further the bubbly nature of the tartan. The thinner white stripes that run both horizontally and vertically are there to help lighten the pattern as well. Ensure that your Cornish tartan kilt fits excellently by ordering it in your hip size and waist size along with the fell measurement and kilt length you want.
