Dellenkilten of Helsingland
The idea for Dellenkilten (The Dellen Kilt) was conceived at Delsbostämman, the annual local folk music festival, in Delsbo 2011.
A Swedish tartan with inspiration from the beautiful colours of Delsbodräkten, the traditional costume of the area. In consultation with the local tailor and the chairman of the Delsbo Homebuilding Association, I set out to create a tartan with roots deep in the ground and history of Helsingland. Named after the Dellen lake system, consisting of Northern and Southern Dellen, the Dellen tartan was officially registered in The Scottish Register of Tartans in May 2015 with the first Dellenkilten produced that summer.
Originally conceived as an alternative to the local traditional costume, it is also used in combination with traditional outfits and has also found its way outside of Helsingland. From traditional outfit to rock’n’roll – a kilt is an all-in-one garment for people all over the world that you can wear for any occasion. It works just as well in the local pub as at a wedding.
Dellenkilten is for those that want a high quality kilt with a tartan inspired by one of the most beautiful areas in Sweden – Dellenbygden.
You may see this as a result of a Scandinavian and Scottish relationship that our ancestors started a thousand years ago.
On the 11th of February 2019 the Dellen tartan was join by an additional Hälsingland tartan. Inspired by nature and the bedrock, sand, earth and water that shaped the mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes of Hälsingland – Grim of Helsingland.
Our kilts… the wool fabric is woven and tailored in Scotland. This is not a cheap “party kilt” replica even if we feel you can and should wear it for fun. Everything in regards to the type of wool, weaving and tailoring is of superior quality. The kilt is tailored especially for you, based on your measurements and is always quality controlled in Delsbo before it’s delivered. With all our products we rely on the years of knowledge and experience of our suppliers when it comes to quality. Among our partners your will find court suppliers and weaving mills that supply fabric for French fashion houses.
