Durdatha whye!
Good day to you!

If you are ever interested, I found some Cornish kilts. I know how much the men love the kilts on here. In the Cornish tartan, each color has a particular meaning:

Gold is for the Cornish kings
Blue is for St. Pirrans flag
Red is for the legs and beak of the Cornish chough
White is for the tin that runs through rocks beneath Cornwall

To check out some Cornish kilts, try this site:Cornish Tartans

Hope you enjoy!

Tereba nessa. Comero weeth.
Till next time. Take care.

Thanks Em! That is a very interesting site! The tartan they use in the background is beautiful! I don't wear a kilt and don't have one, but I enjoy looking at the beautful tartan patterns! I tried to find a gallery of the tartans they have available, but apparently you have to order the catalog to see them. (Unless I'm missing something, which is ENTIRELY possible! wink.gif )

on the Cornish tatans site if you click on the "for hire" section and then on the "detail" section you can see the cornish national and cornish hunting tartans.

The idea of cornish tartans and kilt wear is laughable, I support a cornish claim for independance but i do not think it will go far if they adopt other countries culture (ie: scottish) when it does not belong to them or play any historically valued roles.

the cornish did not wear kilt just as the welsh did not, it is just a gimmick and in my opinion the cornish should stick to being cornish.

Welcome to the Cornwall forum, Teashoci.

I respect your opinions and am glad that you share them. But if I've learned anything about history it's that all cultures are influenced by others around them. Cornwall is no exception, especially in such close proximity to the English and Scottish traditions and culture. And I highly doubt any culture, especially in this day and age, has not adopted parts of other cultures, traditions or beliefs at some point in time. But that is my opinion.

I agree. There is evidence that plaid was being exported by the Celtic Britons even before Julius Ceasar conquered the Britons. The fact that the Cornish kilt in its modern form was adopted after the Scots did so does not make it any less authentic than the modern Scottish kilt which likely owes as much to Vicotrian upper class English as to the Scots.

the brythonic clothes worn by celts during the roman invasion of briton were accounted for as vertical striped clothes ( usually in the form of trousers and upper body clothing )
not tartan.
as the romans never conquered scotland ( only england wales ) no evidence or conclusions may support we traded with them.
but ill keep an open mind until ihave been presented with such evidence.
