A hard enamel tartan kilt pin in greens and blues
An festival tartan kilt in beautiful shades of blue and green is one of our favorite exclusive gifts. This limited edition pin is cast in a silver-tone base metal with full color hard enamel. Each pin measures 1.125″ across and comes with a secure rubber pin back. The pins are hand filled, so there may be some variation from pin to pin..
In either the late 17th or early 18th century the small kilt (fèileadh beag simply philabeg) came into use over the standard great kilt. The new style featured a single width of cloth worn hanging below the belt grew in popularity throughout the Highlands and northern Lowlands by 1746. Over the next century, the pattern and pleats of the new, smaller kilt were standardized into what we now recognize as the modern kilt.
