The brat was the predecessor of the Scottish kilt. Brats were presumably worn from the 3rd to the 16th century in Ireland and Scotland. The cloaks were big enough to transport a lamb, it functioned as a sleeping bag and it provided protection against rain. It was an essential part of the clothing of the Gaelic culture.
This replica is made of wool just like the original. It consists of several parts because the weaving frames were not big enough to weave the entire width of the brat in one time. Its width is approx. 2,5 m and it reaches from the shoulder to the ankle.
