Spring is here! September news.

Scottish Clans Association (Auckland) - Annual Dinner 

Coming up soon, book now for the 17th September, 2022 -  full details here. Take the opportunity to dust off the kilt and the sash, connect with your Scottish side, and celebrate Spring! Venue is the Parnell Hotel and Conference Centre in Auckland.

Kirkin' of the the Tartan - Video

Stories abound of the Kirkin's roots during the Act of Proscription, when the wearing of the kilt was banned in the Highlands. The legend says that Highlanders hid pieces of tartan and took them to Church to be secretly blessed at a particular point in the service. Whether the legend is true or not, the Kirkin' ceremony is now a tradition, including in New Zealand - one was held at St Andrew's First Presbyterian Church in Auckland on Sunday 26 June 2022, here's a link to the video.

New for Spring - Sporrans, Buckles, Sgian Dubhs, Belts

Guys, treat yourself to a new sporran - we have just added these two dress sporrans to our range, the cantles are in "chocolate bronze" - a rich coppery-coloured metal giving a very different look to the traditional polished nickel:


Two designs, Stags Head or Highland Coo, with corresponding brown- or rust-coloured fur and a black leather back and interior. For more, see our full range of Dress Sporrans here.

If you prefer more casual look, check our Semi-Dress Sporrans and Day Sporrans. We also have a good range of Pipe Band Sporrans.

We also have a couple of new belt buckles in chocolate bronze/copper tones, and some new Sgian Dubhs in the same. The belt buckles come in the Stags Head or Highland Coo designs to match the sporrans:


The Sgian Dubhs have a Celtic Knot theme, and come with either a plain ball top, or a stone-inset top in your choice of 6 colours:


 Again, there are many other choices, check our full collections of Buckles and both Dress Sgian Dubhs and Day Sgian Dubhs.

The last new product for now is the Premium utility kilt belt. It has the usual kilt-belt width of 2.25 inches, made of quality black leather with an embossed Celtic knot pattern and featuring a solid plain polished nickel one-prong buckle:


We look forward to seeing many of you at the Clan Dinner in Auckland.
