The Kilt Pin
Legend has it the kilt pin was invented by Queen Victoria.
Whilst inspecting Highland troops on a windy day, she noticed one soldier valiantly attempting to keep his aprons from flapping. The Queen instructed a lady-in-waiting to stick a hat pin through his front apron, thus weighing it down.
Kilt pins today range from highly decorative swords, Celtic knotwork designs, and stylized animal interpretations. A common misconception is to pin both aprons together. This will cause the kilt to hang improperly and could damage the fabric.
Kilt pins are often worn three inches up from the hem and three inches in from the fringe. An older traditional method is to wear it halfway up the apron.
All kilt pins are made in the United Kingdom. All prices are in Canadian funds.
