The ‘British Airborne Forces Tartan’ is the only officially registered tartan in the world, to pay respect to the British Airborne Forces. The British Airborne Forces Tartan is officially recognised by the British Airborne Forces. And is proudly worn by former and current British Airborne Forces personnel and their families, friends and supporters all over the world.
We have created this Authentic Tartan exclusively for you. Weaving the DNA of the British Airborne Forces into it’s very core, by incorporating these significant colours:-
MAROON & LIGHT BLUE: Represent the iconic British Airborne Forces Pegasus Flash. Featuring the slayer of enemies ‘Bellerophon’ astride his winged steed ‘Pegasus’. Introduced by General ‘Boy’ Browning in 1942.
WHITE: Signifies the paramount chords of the parachutes.
BLACK: Is for respect for all fallen British Airborne Forces comrades.
Your unique British made British Airborne Forces Tartan Kilt is made from the finest quality medium weight (13 oz.) British Airborne Forces Tartan. Made with the full 8 yards, with no amount of effort nor material spared during the making! The traditional selvedge is the proper historical edge favoured by the military and pipe bands and all those ‘In the know about kilts!’ Taking longer to weave than the ‘modern tuck-in method’, the traditional process used to create your British Airborne Forces Tartan kilt produces a far superior finish. Hand marked in the traditional way to ensure both accuracy of the fit as well as the accuracy of your original British Airborne Forces Tartan design throughout the pleated area. All straps and buckles are sewn by hand and the pleats are machined for extra strength. With a high quality canvas and lining to ensure exceptional comfort and security for the individual. A kilt of this calibre would normally cost around £550 plus.
It’s worth knowing, that when you are planning your own personal diary for when you would like to be wearing your new British Airborne Forces Tartan Kilt. That it can take around 4 to 7 weeks to be made, from the date of your order when the British Airborne Forces Tartan is in stock, and up to 16 weeks when we need more tartan woven. If your kilt is for a specific event with a timely deadline date, then please place your order as much in advance as possible. We will always try our best to have your kilt ready in time, but a bit of British Airborne Forces forward planning will really help us!

Due to the ‘made to measure’ nature of this kilt, returns cannot be accepted for ill-fitting garments. The responsibility of the fit is with the customer. Which is why we request you to ‘double check’ your measurements in accordance to ‘our measuring guide’ and to have a helper assist you, not to self-measure.
We are very proud to be Official M.O.D. Licensees. Which means, for every product we sell that features any of the Tri-services crests, we give a percentage to the relevant M.O.D. Benevolent Fund.
All tartans in our range are worn by current, former, future personnel and their families, friends and supporters. And are not part of any official uniform.
