A warm welcome to Carduus Kilts, a French based Scottish enterprise making quality traditional hand-made Scottish kilts. The business is the pet project of kilt maker Gary McDonald and back-up guru and wife, Susan McDonald.

Carduus Kilts is based in the Charente (Nouvelle Aquitaine Region), historically a popular area for Scots mercenaries and merchants to settle in – something to do with Cognac and Bordeaux wines I believe.  However, the materials in a Carduus kilt are sourced from Scotland and sewn by a Scottish kilt maker making Carduus kilts as traditionally Scottish as any kilt can be.

Welcome to the Carduus Kilts website, please take some time to explore the pages here, and if you have any questions or would like to place an order, don’t hesitate to contact us through the contact page.
