My Job Your Job

Late 2019, we had the privilege of being part of Bavarian Primetime TV show- Mein Job Dein Job (or as we would say My Job Your Job). Two of our GNK kiltmakers travelled to Germany to learn the craft of dirdnl making, while two expert dirdnl makers were surprised with a trip to Edinburgh to learn kiltmaking with us!

It was clear from the start that, despite a language barrier for some, we had a great deal in common while also learning a lot from each other and sharing in many laughs along the way.

We hope to see you back again for a visit...and maybe to sew a few pleats for us again soon ladies!

We hope to be able to share the footage in the near future - stay tuned!

Our Bavarian visitors got to grips with pleating really quickly, especially under the guidance of Kirsty, the Head of Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy.

It was no holiday in Scotland or Germany for our brave artisans! In Edinburgh there was pleating to be done, customers to get suited and booted, a trip down to Lochcarron of Scotland Mill to bring back some much needed tartan and, not forgetting, lots and lots of hand sewing!
