Short History of the Kilt
The kilt was first know as the great kilt, the breacan or belted plaid. The kilt is Highland Gaelic in origin and first appeared in the 16th century as a full-length garment whose upper half could be worn draped over the shoulder, or brought up over the head.
The philibeg or small kilt, also known as the walking kilt (similar to the modern kilt) was used by Highlander’s employed in logging industries, charcoal manufacture and iron smelting.
