A Scottish Tradition - Tailors and Kiltmakers, Tartan and Highland Dress since 1868 by Deirdre Kinloch Anderson OBE

For over 150 years the Scottish firm of Kinloch Anderson has maintained its position as a worldwide market leader in Scottish traditional dress and kiltmaking. The Company is now into the sixth generation of family management – a status achieved by just 1% of all UK family businesses. This book is an insight into their heritage, their story and the role they have played in Scottish clothing, tartan and textiles.

The book has nine chapters, and 160 pages, all richly illustrated in full colour, dealing with:

Highland Dress and its history

The heritage of Kinloch Anderson

Uniforms for the Services

Highland Dress in Modern Times


Scottish Dress for Ladies

Early marketing history, exporting and brand development

The Global Impact of Tartan

A walk round the fascinating Kinloch Anderson Heritage Room at the Company's Edinburgh HQ in Leith.

There is also a timeline of significant Company milestones. This book is a remarkable look inside one of Scotland's greatest commercial enterprises whose products are available in many markets and are immediately recognisable as quintessentially Scottish.

This book was previously published by NWP Ltd, Scotland
