Our first and legendary Kick Ass Kilt design was the Maxi!  With no fabric waste fresh from our looms, this kilt is not just a kilt, it’s a cape and a top half piece in one.  Designed to follow form, there is only one piece of hardware, the kilt strap and buckle with a 3-inch size range always.  Lets face it we all move up and down at little, and we hate those clothes that don’t go with flow….

All maxi’s are made to order, it fit’s better, so will be loved more and in time saves the planet and your purse….

What It's Made Of

  • Made with 100% finest natural merino wool
  • Spun and dyed in Scotland
  • Woven into tartan fabrics by us at our Highland mill
  • All labels made from hand cut and laser etched Scottish leather

Who It's Made By

  • Made by bad-ass womxn and men of the Scottish Highlands 
  • Proudly preserving century old textile skills and machinery
  • Also proudly disrupting the world of future clothing, we have seen the past and it works!

• Size – Made to Measure, please specify your preferred waistband size (ie where you want the kilt to sit) and your widest hip size. Your kilt will be made to order, then despatched within 2 weeks.

• Length – with an a-symmetric hem line, the shortest length is approx. 26” from the waistband to the longest length of approx 35”

• Waistband – should your waist size be over 38” your maxi will feature an extra panel of the same fabric to ensure we can keep being bad-ass zero waste but also give you plenty of fabric swag perfect for you.

• Item Finishing – Rope stitch edging with small hand fray finish on maxi edge, two feature kilt straps and buckles, with branded real leather label.

• Fabric Design - Black Elements, a new limited edition design interpretation of our Elements tartan. We have gone back to black, and grey.... mirroring the 4 shades used in each element tartan we have created this edgy and very rebellious black beauty!

• Weave Design - woven to our unique and in-house created technical shadow twill. Creating an eye catching ribbed affect, our shadow weave adds rebellious body!

• Fabric Repeat – all fabric has been cut by hand from the cloth roll woven at our mill, therefore aspects of the repeat will be unique to each item, which is pretty cool as it makes them all unique!

• Colour Options - Black and dark grey hues

• Fabric Weight Options - Lightweight to wear with a densely woven thread count. This is a truly fine merino wool wonder!

An inheritance.

My brother wears my Granddad's kilt and I am wondering if my daughter may one day inherit mine! Beautiful material, nothing like the horrendous school kilt of my youth, smooth, warm and a delight to wear. While I loved some of the other colours available the black is very versatile and can be worn casually or dressed up. The cut is also incredibly flattering, the length practical, not sure what more you could ask of a skirt?!

Stunning Maxi Kilt

I love the flexibility of the maxi kilt and in the black elements is simply stunning. Perfect to wear casually or to a formal event - catches the light beautifully to show the subtle detail and feels fabulous - a true classic that will stand the test of time and give many years of pleasure.

Give yourself some rocking elegance!

I have bought kilts from them before, but this one…the black elements maxi kilt is my absolute favorite. It makes me feel elegant, and yet bad ass enough to take on the world. Pretty amazing for just a piece of clothing!
