Outlander fans who have been anxious to obtain copies of the gorgeous costumes designed by Terry Dresbach in the riveting Starz series will soon be able to do so, courtesy of the family-owned and operated Celtic Croft. The Celtic Croft and Knockout Licensing have entered into a deal to produce Outlander kilts and other apparel including tartans, shawls, and tams from the same 100% wool tartan and mill that produces the material for the costumes featured in the series.
“Knockout Licensing has been seeking licensees that offer the kind of high-end, high-quality, beautifully-crafted Outlander products that fans have been asking for since the series began airing,” said Knockout Licensing Co-President Tamra Knepfer. “We know how passionate Outlander fans are, so we are partnering with select Outlander licensees that can do the property justice. The Celtic Croft is one such partner.”
“Fans who want an authentic Outlander kilt can rest assured that our kilts are the real deal, made from the same fabric and sourced from the same weaver as those seen on the show,” said The Celtic Croft Owner, Joseph Croft. “The Celtic Croft has been in the kilt business for almost 20 years, making custom-tailored kilts to each customer’s exact measurements. The Celtic Croft is one of the largest U.S. importers of authentic Tartan fabric woven in Scotland.”
Outlander is based on the bestselling book series by Diana Gabaldon, with Ronald D Moore adapting Gabaldon’s books and executive producing the Starz series. The cast is led by Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, and Tobias Menzies and features Duncan Lacroix, Graham McTavish, Lotte Verbeek, Laura Donnelly, and Steven Cree.
