Our Australian Utility Kilts are always in development here at Ozkilts. And we are constantly in the process of updating our existing patterns, and always on a quest to develop the perfect piece, often leading to new designs. We’ve now lost count of the number of improvements, revisions and changes to our design specifications, but it’s at least in the hundreds.

Australian Utility Kilt Brand by Ozkilts But that doesn’t mean that we don’t ensure the quality of all our existing designs, and the pieces we already have that our loyal customers love to have and are proud to wear. What’s the greatest motivator for us at Ozkilts is that our clients are happy with their purchases.

It warms my heart to know that what we do helps our kilted clan to look good, feel good, and be proud in the kilt they wear. And as an avid utility kilt wearer myself, I’m happy that our kilted community is growing. For me, this is more than a testament of who we are, and the quality we provide.

Our goal is to offer the highest quality Australian designed kilts, not only in Australia, but throughout the world.


How Ozkilts Came to Be.

As a kilt lover who’s been wearing one for years, I found it quite frustrating not being able to get quality kilts right here in Australia. The problem was, the Australian kilt industry (and the world over) has been flooded with inferior overseas manufactured kilts.

To put it bluntly, there are cheap kilts floating around in the kilt market. Note that getting cheap comes at a price and can potentially cost you more in the long run, usually we find these cheap kilts are more suited to a one use costume party (as long as you don’t mind looking tacky).

Though we’re not against sourcing items manufactured abroad, there has to be a rigid quality control. Inferior imported kilts often lack its front Z apron to cut down on the materials used, or use hot fully synthetic materials.

To make matters worse, local manufacturers started popping up and began shipping poor quality items to their customers. This is an issue I had to contend with, the lack of a reputable quality kilt supplier throughout Australia. Even worse, buyers down under often get the short end of the stick.

If I wanted to go for quality, I had to source items from the US. This means I have to shell out and pay for exorbitant postage and shipping fees, which they don’t tell you about until you check out. Even then, the quality was slipping significantly from these suppliers, who were clearly lacking quality manufacturer and control.

I also had to contend with dealing with the dismal exchange rates that make a singular purchase much more expensive than they ought to be. Adding to my frustration, is the long wait time to receive my items.

This just won’t do. Out of these frustrations, I created Ozkilts. I worked with experienced fashion designers, built manufacturer relationships, created the branding, and everything else to formulate a range of quality products.

Add to this, I also developed a smooth ordering process to make it easy and buying our kilts a fast and fun adventure.
