What is Tartan?
Tartan is of course Scotland’s most famous textile. The iconic material is created using a combination of coloured threads woven together in traditional patterns. These patterns have become core in Scotland’s identity and Tartan is certainly an iconic part of Scottish culture.
The History of Tartan
Tartan was first mentioned in 1538 and since then, Tartan has continued to be popular across Scotland and the rest of the world. Many of the clanspeople originally used local plants, mosses and berries to dye the wool which was then woven into their own tartan. Each clan has their own tartan, with many people across the world showcasing their Scottish Heritage through tartan and kilts.
Many men continue to wear kilts to special occasions, particularly weddings, and often choose to wear their own family tartan to these occasions. The tradition and celebration of tartan continues around the world to this day, in fact, there are even special celebrations held around the world for tartan.
To this day tartan is still incredibly popular around the globe, so it is no wonder that many people want to showcase this wonderful tradition in their homes and businesses through tartan carpets.
