NHS – Northumbria Healthcare Tartan Kilt


This unique Northumbria Healthcare Kilt is made in the same stunning Northumbria Healthcare Tartan design and colours as the Northumbria Healthcare Tartan Scarf.  It is worn with pride in the UK and worldwide, in celebration of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

You can enjoy wearing this fabulous kilt at any special occasions and events, instead of having to splash out on new suits every year. And there’s nothing more handsome than a man in a kilt, they always steal the limelight! Perfect for weddings and all manner of occasions!

The Northumbria Healthcare Tartan Kilt is made to the exact specifications of each individual. The attention to detail throughout the hand worked areas of the process creates an exceptional garment. In our opinion, far superior in quality to the fully machine made kilts. Made in the traditional and authentic manner with the ‘traditional selvedge technique’.

Your kilt will quickly grow into being your preferred garment of choice to wear for all your very special events in life to come! The longevity of a kilt is amazing, it is a much better investment than a suit. With it being fully adjustable you will be able to wear it for years to come! And we know you will get a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction from wearing it. Where memories will be created, captured and remembered for posterity. And your Northumbria Healthcare Tartan Kilt will naturally become a genuine family heirloom. We feel this is very important, therefore every kilt made, comes complete with a brass disc engraved with your own unique ‘personalised information’ and is hand sewn into the inside of the kilt apron. All of our kilts also come with a matching pair of Northumbria Healthcare Tartan flashes and garters.

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 Northumbria Healthcare 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 Northumbria Healthcare 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.
