Tartans & Tweeds

We offer access to thousands of tartans in various cloth weights, a custom tartan design service and commonly also supply a wide selection of tartan and tweed fabric for home decorating, soft furnishing and everyday or fashion garments.

tweeds

Our tweeds are likewise imported from leading Scottish mills and are available in a variety of traditional and often newly fashionable patterns and weights. Choose from shades of brown, grey, blue and green to create a fabulous tweed suit, trousers, skirt or jacket or unique soft furnishings with some true Scots heritage.

 

 

 

 


Tartans

Tartan fabric – generally 100% pure new wool – can be ordered by the metre or yard in different widths and weights. Our superb tartan cloth is imported from Scotland’s finest mills and has many popular uses beyond kilt making, as it’s ideal for household soft furnishings, children’s clothing, ladies fashion garments, headwear and more.

We also offer a complete range of top quality Irish and Irish County tartans.

 


Staghorn has access to many hundreds – if not thousands – of original tartans.
If we can’t find it, it probably isn’t being made. But don’t despair…
There are many, many generics that might be to your taste.

 

 


A full tartan design service is available in-house and below are just some of the designs that we have worldwide registration for:

 

We can custom-design you a tartan, woven and registered for a family name, a business, a place, a commercial brand or even a special event. We’ll work from family or geographical information or perhaps incorporate colours that have a special meaning.

The design is free, but we reserve to right to have the tartan woven for you and to hand-craft the kilts or whatever garment you need from it.

Imagine having a tartan designed and produced especially for your own family,
a wedding, company, professional association, old boys’ club, brand
or just to commemorate a special event.

Jewellery & Gifts

We’re pleased to offer a select array of Celtic-style brooches, pendants, cufflinks, quaichs, pewterware and more.


quaich

The word Quaich derives from the Gaelic ‘cuach’ meaning ‘shallow cup’ and is pronounced qwaich with a ‘ch’ sound, as in ‘loch’. One of the traditions of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and around the diaspora is that important toasts are shared with this doubled-handled cup.

Nowadays, the quaich makes a unique gift item, a loving cup, given as a token of friendship, a wedding favour or as a display piece. Commonly, around the world, the Scots quaich is used to raise a toast at special occasions such as weddings, Burns Night, christenings, club reunions and family celebrations.
