How nice to read these comments! I just found a Gor-Ray women's kilt at a flea market (in Finland!) in mint condition and of course leaped at it, it looks lovely and the colours are fantastic. Trying to find information on the manufacturer I came across this page. It seems I've found a gem and indeed I should think these skirts are in for a revival! Tartan is very much in fashion, and kilts are never out of it, come to think of it.
Thank you all for sharing lovely memories and information, this has been a great time-travel, even if my memories with these skirts only started yesterday.
I worked at forests for over 15 years when open at Enfield I have still got two skirts and one kilt I bought in the sale I enjoy working there but it was hard work as we were all on peace work it was a good working place to had god FRENDS there
They were fantastic skirts. I had several first bought in 1970 and they were worth every penny. You really could sit in them all day in the office and the pleats were perfect. Such quality and gorgeous colours.
Just reading about the GOR-RAY kilt.
I have just listed a beautiful full length one on ebay in perfect condition if anyone is interested.
Gor ray kilts, the Bain of my life. My mother used to work there in Enfield and she would bring home vast quantitys of these kilts and we would have to sit there and pull the threads out to make the fray down the front. Just seeing the name provokes those images of them kilts all round the dining room. My mother must have hundreds as they would have staff sales and sell them next to nothing, all our school skirts were gor ray. I even did my work experience in there computer dept. now I look back the computer was as big as a car in its own room and it had no keys you had to feed it hole punched cards. 1977 . Those were the days.
Loved my gorray skirts in the seventies and eighties. The pleats were so flattering and always looked perfect. I used to wear them to go out partying! Imagine wearing one now. I think its time for the revival of this line, they've revived Biba etc. Making the banner now bring back Gorray.
I remember my first gor-ray kilt in 1964 - the price was DM 175,00 - very expensive. 10 Years later I send it in the former DDR, and it looked like brandnew. My last gor-ray I bought in 1988 and I wore it for 20 years. I hope that gor-ray will have a revival - I'm looking for a new kilt in this quality!
This is fab idea, it makes you wonder why we don't have them today.
