About Brenda Thomson

Highland Kilt Maker

I am passionate about the preservation of the Scottish heritage & culture and express this through the hand crafting of traditional Scottish kilts for men, women and Highland dancers of all ages. Each kilt I make is bestoked (made to order and customized for a specific person).  I take great pride in my competencies and skillset taught to me by Master Kilt Maker Helen McCrindle, of West Vancouver, BC, Canada. Helen has instilled in me the importance of attention to detail, dedication to my craft, and what truly defines a 'Quality' garment; attributes she herself perfected in her own kilt making for over 25 years. Like her, I use only the highest quality tartan weaves from the finest mills in Scotland. I am also involved in the making of custom fit jackets and vests for competition level Highland dancers.


As a company, Highland Kilt Maker seeks to champion and further the cause of the Scottish cultural heritage. This is accomplished by producing kilts and Highland garments made to the highest of traditional standards, hand-stitched, and custom fit for men, women, children, and highland dancers that choose to become my clients. Each garment produced is professionally hand-crafted in the traditional, old world style of Scotland. I am honoured to offer this service to you.
