Create your own tartan
Tartan is an iconic part of Scottish culture and you might want to take part in it by creating your own tartan! Whether you want to pay tribute to your Scottish heritage, celebrate an important personnal or family event, or create a unique tartan for your brand, event or organisation, we’re here to help!
Tartan offers endless design possibilities
As artisan kiltmakers, when we talk about tartan, we think about it as a woven cloth, made of 100% wool, also referred as “plaid”, accross the pond. But tartan is, quite simply, a pattern of intersecting lines, running both horizontally and vertically. This means that there are an infinity of creative possibilities, which can make the process of designing such a complex fabric from scratch, quite daunting. Choosing the colours, number of threads for each stripe and block of colour, there are many parameters to consider to produce a stunning tartan, and requires a trained eye.
Whether you like or don’t like a paticular tartan is often a matter of taste. However, as kiltmakers working with different tartans every day, we understand the importance of a well structured and balanced design that will turn heads. We also always have at heart to create tartans that will be perfectly adapted to the making of bespoke kilts and accessories.
