Quite Possibly the World's Best Kilt Hose

That's how I'm billing the hose that are made by the House of Cheviot in Hawick, Scotland, and I stand by that! Personally, since I discovered this company a few years back, I wear their hose almost exclusively (with the exception of those hose my wife has hand knit for me, of course, which are in a category all their own).

We have sold hose by the House of Cheviot in the Scottish Tartans Museum gift shop for a few years now. Specifically, we sell quite a bit of the Lewis Hose line. We brought them in because of the color range -- we stock them in 18 different colors! They cost more than our standard hose, but we figured we would sell a few in the more unusual color options to our more discriminating customers.

Boy were we shocked! All people had to do was to see and feel the quality of these hose in person, and they quickly became our best seller. Despite costing about $20 more than our "standard" hose option, they outsell all of our other hose bar none.

Needless to say, I am a big fan of House of Cheviot and their product. Which is why I am very excited to announce that New House Highland is now the official North American distributor for House of Cheviot's Highland range!

I have a new web site established at:

This is a public catalog web site. Please take a look and browse through all the available offerings. New House Highland will be selling House of Cheviot products wholesale to the trade only. Retail inquiries are welcome, but will be directed to the nearest stockist. We are currently building our state-side inventory, as well as building our client base. So, if you have a Highland Dress business, we want to hear from you. If you have a favorite place to buy your Highland Dress goods, please tell them you recommend they stock House of Cheviot hose. We are also happy to sell at discount rates to Pipe Bands.

This is a new venture for us, one which we are very excited about. Please help us spread the word!
