Tartan Patterns

Scottish Tartan Patterns

 

Tartan patterns have become synonymous with Scotland and Scottish clans and families in particular. However,  Scottish Tartan Patterns were originally a style of cloth intended to be decorative. They had patterns that were popular within certain districts where they were made. These specific areas made their dyes out of the materials available to them in that area. Hence certain colors could be associated with certain areas. This has led to the idea of district or area tartans and an association between the land, the community and its cloth.

 

Where there was a strong clan within a district or area, as was often the case in the highlands, then this clan would be recognised as of a clan from a certain area because of their tartan. This must have been particularly true of clans from the Western Isles. It is this concept of clan tartans that today predominates our thinking about Scottish Tartan Patterns.
