Tag Archives: Traditional Scottish National Costume

Contrary to many assertions began the Scots only in modern times, in the 19th century on, to wear tartans as a sign of clan membership. Also the “Great, belted blanket” is an invention of the late Renaissance, and the kilt of the modern era. The first documented plaids from the 16th century are monochrome. In Scotland, the same clothes was in the Middle Ages worn as on the mainland, ie until the early Gothic Germanic slacks and tunics, and then Cotte and leg warmers.
