--> Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy – Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers

Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy

In April 2009, we opened our store in the Canongate. We were passionate about the craftsmanship and heritage that was woven into every kilt and after noticing a decline in the quality of kilts elsewhere, Gordon set to work on his life-long dream: to provide a course where people could learn how to make kilts to an exceptionally high standard. This was the beginning of the Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy.
He was also passionate about introducing a higher standard of kiltmaking. This was to ensure every kilt made was a quality product. To this day, this intensive course teaches students how to produce exceptional kilts while also providing education on the history behind them. 
We believe this new, highly skilled generation will revitalise the industry while also preserving traditional Scottish heritage.
