The Keith Kilt and Textile Centre was formed in 2005 from the previous
Keith Kilt School (the original "Kilt School" of Scotland) that was established in 1994. The original idea of the Kilt School was to train former millworkers from Keith and district in the traditional art of Kilt making following the demise of the Woollen Mills, Kynochs and Laidlaws.
The original Keith Kilt School was funded through European (ESF) and local authority funding. It was postcode led and many students went on to establish their own kilt making businesses. In 2005 the Moray Textile Project was formed as a company ltd by guarantee, and a social enterprise with charitable status. The Moray Textile Project trades as The Keith Kilt and Textile Centre and is run by a voluntary board of directors. KKTC still train kilt makers in the traditional art of Kiltmaking. We hold the only SQA qualification for a customised award in Traditional Kiltmaking in the world. Think Kilts, think Keith, Think Keith Kilt School!!
