Design your own Tartan
Houston Kiltmakers provide tartan designing and weaving services and we are more than happy to share our expert help and advice on how to get your tartan woven.
We can take you through the full process, from designing your Tartan, to registering it with the Scottish Register of Tartan and then on to weaving your design. We provide the service of having your tartan design woven into a minimum of 3 kilt lengths (13m by 1.5m) where this can be made into a bespoke kilt, tartan trousers, a shoulder plaid, hand ties, ring cushion, ties, bowties and ladieswear or just material for future use.
You can design your own Tartan by using the STA's intuitive 'Croft Weaver' application.
If you wish, our Owner Ken MacDonald can design a Tartan with that extra 'wow' factor for you. In the past he has designed our exclusive Bute Heather range as well as the 'American National Tartan' which was presented to George W. Bush in 2004 and the 'Glasgow's Miles Better' tartan which was made into a pair of Kilts and presented to Prince Charles for Prince William and Prince Harry.
Our Special Weave Tartan guide provides a detailed and comprehensive look into all the stages of getting your tartan from initial design to a bespoke kilt.
