Alexander Tartan

The Alexander Tartan is a modern creation with a rich historical backdrop, designed specifically for journalist Mark Alexander. First introduced at his wedding in 2000, this tartan carries personal and familial significance, drawing from the MacLaren tartan, which is linked to Mark Alexander's maternal heritage. The original MacLaren design was creatively adapted, with the yellow over checks replaced by white and the red checks turned purple, infusing the tartan with a unique and personalized flair. Although the Alexander Tartan is primarily associated with the Alexander name, its use is open to others sharing the surname, provided they obtain permission from Mark Alexander as of August 2005. The colors of the tartan, which include blue, green, white, purple, and black, come together to create a design that not only pays homage to family ties but also enhances the elegance of traditional Scottish attire. Wearing the Alexander Tartan is more than just donning a piece of cloth; it's about embracing a legacy and adding a touch of sophistication to any outfit, from kilts to jackets.
The Alexander Tartan boasts a striking pattern that features bold blue, green, and black stripes, accented with thin white stripes. This combination of colors creates a visually appealing and versatile design, suitable for a wide range of garments. The intricate interplay of these hues adds depth and richness, making it a favored choice for kilts, skirts, and other traditional Scottish attire. The elegance of the Alexander Tartan lies in its ability to transform simple clothing into distinguished pieces that reflect both personal heritage and contemporary style.
