Hi gang! I've been busy adding some new products to the Gift Shop catalog on the Scottish Tartans Museum web page.
First offering are our new Lewis Kilt Hose, from the House of Cheviot in Hawick, Scotland. This is the company that made the hose I was raving about in an earlier blog post. They have the widest range of color of any line of kilt hose I've seen, and they are all very nicely toned to match just about any tartan. They also have an available line of traditional garter ties that come in the same wide color range (and just to clarify, you can wear these garters with any kilt hose).
Another great selling point is that these hose are half merino wool and half man-made fibers, making them not only soft and comfortable, but machine washable (cool water, gentle cycle; air dry please) with no worry of shrinking.
The hose sell for $45 and the garters for $24.

Also, we just learned this week that our supplier of fine dress and semi-dress sporrans had ceased trading and so we took this loss as an opportunity to add another fine supplier to our Highland Dress line, L & M sporrans from Nova Scotia. We now are proud to be able to offer the full line of sporrans from this company to our clients, including leather, fur, and full mask sporrans. Following the previous links will take you to our on line catalog where you can order right on line. However, this is only a sampling (albeit a large one) of L&M's total sporran line. If you'd like to browse their own web site, you can contact the Scottish Tartans Museum to order through our gift shop. We'll be happy to quote a price and work out all purcahse details.
