I have been told by some friends of Scottish ancestry that a proper kilt is not sewn closed in the form in which it is worn, rather it is a single long piece of fabric which is held in place with a belt. Taking this into account, as well as the fact that its smaller dimension is larger than one amah, it would seem to require tzitzit.
My question here is two-fold:
- Would a kilt require tzitzit to be worn?
- According to the opinion of the Rambam, what colour would the strings be, considering the tartan pattern?
