About DC Dalgliesh
DC Dalgliesh is Scotland’s last artisanal tartan specialist weaving worsted wools and pure spun silk (not dupion) in any tartan.
We use only traditional shuttle looms for a superb natural selvedge (not tuck-in) on every piece.
Hand-production methods mean we can produce unique tartans in minimums from only 4 yards (3.7m) even for single garments. Or we can also produce in large volumes. And we hold stocks of both traditional tartans and dancers plaids.
Using high quality yarns, densely woven fabrics, hand-finishing, and traditional selvages, our materials are renowned as the finest tartans available. Our fabrics are the undisputed favourite of kilt makers and tartan experts worldwide.
Our silks are also woven in any tartan, from a single sash upwards. These are produced as a luxurious twill weave, or a gossamer thin plain cloth. We also manufacture a range of exclusive products, with hand-knotted fringes our speciality.
Traditional knowledge is now coupled with cutting-edge technological expertise, for efficient service. Our photo realistic Tartan Library shows every possible tartan, with the facility to specify your own variant.
Expert services includes tartan design, product design, and product manufacture. Clients include royalty, A-list celebrities, film studios, and the world’s largest companies. But we provide the same level of dedicated service to every customer.
Our own team of tailors manufactures trade samples and smaller orders on site. Or we can supply fabrics or products in any volume or in alternative outsourced fabrics through our partner company, Scotweb Tartan Mill www.scotweb.co.uk.
