Hi Matthew. There are certainly kiltmakers in Scotland who are able to undertake the making of a kilt in a special weave tartan. The tartan which forms the background to this website is called 'James of Glencarr', which is our personal tartan (and a special weave). I have no objection to anybody with the surname of James having it woven though.

There are other James tartans around and these can be found on the website of the Scottish Tartans Authority, which can be found here - http://www.tartansauthority.com/

One long established kiltmaker in Scotland with experience of special weave is Houston Traditional Kiltmakers, who can be found here - http://www.kiltmakers.com/

Good luck with having your kilt made, nothing looks as smart or dashing as Highland Dress and a good quality kilt will last a lifetime. One thing to note though, special weave is more expensive and a good quality kilt could cost around 500.

At least one of the James tartans may be available as a general weave, and that would be a lot cheaper. However, don't let anybody kid you that the 'James of Wales' tartan is an official Name Tartan for the surname of James.
