Manufacturing Quality Tartans - Minimum 30 metre lengths - Contemporary Accessories & Bespoke Highlander Wear

Established in 1947 by J Morris Buchan, Lochcarron builds on over 60 years of tradition & craftsmanship and utilises state of the art technology to constantly supply high quality innovative textiles.

Lochcarron of Scotland is the world’s leading tartan manufacturer, weaving & stocking the largest range of authentic Scottish tartans, with over 700 tartans in stock. Lochcarron have kilted numerous celebrities from Sean Connery to Shrek.

Weaving in three weights of tartan (as well as lambswool and cashmere):

Light worsted wool suitable for tailored items such as
neck ties, bow ties,cummerbunds etc.


Medium weight worsted wool suitable for kilts, home furnishings.


A traditional heavy weight worsted wool synonymous with the
8 yard hand made traditional kilt.



Tartans I have designed personally and commercialised as custom weaves have been woven by Lochcarron of Scotland. Arbroath's official district tartan, Red Lichtie, and the Northern Lighthouse Board's official corporate tartan, The Bell Rock Lighthouse 200th Anniversary Commemorative tartan, are two such examples.

If you're looking for a large run of tartan, at an attractive cost per metre, why not commission me to design your new tartan. I can work with Lochcarron of Scotland on your behalf ...producing a quality tartan, either to be stored or shipped direct to you.
