Cornish national kilts

KILTS

CORNISH NATIONAL

Each colour in the National Tartan has a special meaning: White on Black for St. Pirans Banner (The Patron Saint of Tinners), black and Gold were the colours of the ancient Cornish kings, red is for the beak and legs of the Chough, the Cornish National bird, and finally the light blue is for the sea surrounding Cornwall. This tartan is unmistakably Cornish, even becoming instantly recognisable by many of our Scottish cousins.

CORNISH HUNTING

The Hunting Tartan incorporates all the colours of the original National Tartan but with a dark green background. However the blue of the sea becomes the Royal Blue, which together with the Gold were the colours of the Cornish Wrestlers. A subtler tartan for quieter folks!

ST PIRAN DRESS

Predominantly featuring the St Piran flag with the familiar dress background colour of Ecru, this tartan also has fine bands of red and dark green, combining to create a crisp and very formal kilt.

CORNISH PASCOE

Developed in 2010 for all the Cornish Pascoes around the world, this tartan is predominantly grey, with an eye-catching yellow cross running through it.

Cornish kilt pins

CORNISH KILT PINS

St Justin

Made exclusively for Cornovi by St Justin of Cornwall, these Pewter kilt pins represent different regions of the County, however if you have no specific allegiance to an area then it is just a question of your favourite design!

The Lanivet pin (Bodmin area): Geographically the centre point of Cornwall, Lanivet was a popular stopping place for pilgrims crossing Cornwall. In the ancient churchyard can be found the 11th/ 12th Century coped stone from which the design for this pin originates.

The Sancreed pin (Penzance area): The Sancreed cross stands by the south door of Sancreed church, 4 miles west of Penzance. Featuring four Stafford knots and a dragon head with serpentine body, it is one of only 2 known zoomorphic interlaced designs on crosses in Cornwall.

The St Mylor pin (Falmouth area): Based upon the tallest cross in Cornwall, this pins design had its origins in pagan worship; however with the establishment of Christianity, the stone was carved into the familiar irregular cross that can be seen in the St Mylor churchyard today.

South Crofty

The South Crofty pin: Crafted from 100% Cornish tin extracted from the famous South Crofty mine in the heart of Cornwall.
