    Weavers/Makers

    Hi,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong area!

    After appearing in TV in my kilt which was a new district tartan I've had people ask if I can get them x, y and z in the tartan. The most notable is a ladies pleated skirt.

    I've asked my kiltmaker and they've quoted 450 but I'm sure this could be done cheaper, though I am aware it would require a custom weave.

    So I appeal to the board if anyone knows any reasonable cheap, preferably UK based weavers or makers. Any help would be hugely appreciated!

    Both of these are worth a call, I've contacted both of them in the past , and they seemed prepared to custom weave for reasonable costs..

    Does that include registration costs or have you already registered the tartan?

    Yes it is

    And thanks to paulhenry, I'll contact them and see what they say Though if anyone else has any other ideas then it's always best to have as many options as possible!
