“Kilts take 16 to 24 hours each to make, and I’m currently working 12 hour days to keep up with the orders,” said Deana. “I’m looking for space in the downtown core and hoping to hire a couple of people so I can grow the business.”
As well as individual orders, Deana supplies kilts to pipe bands and the Canadian military. She also creates tartan fashion accessories, like handbags and jewellery.
