Bruce of Kinnaird Tartan

The tartan has a rich history dating back to Sir Robert de Brus, who accompanied William the Conqueror to England. Sir Robert's son, Robert de Brus, became a Companion-at-Arms to Prince David, who later became King of Scots. King David rewarded Robert with the lands of Annandale in southwest Scotland in 1124, which became the Bruce family's ancestral home. The family crest includes a lion statant with an extended tail, and their Latin motto is "Fuimus" meaning "We have been." The Bruce family's history is linked to the story of Robert the Bruce, who famously defeated the English army at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. The tartan associated with the Bruce family is a variant of the Prince Charles Edward Stuart tartan and has been worn for centuries. It was authorized as the tartan for ordinary wear around 1953 by Lord Bruce of Kinnaird, who is a branch of the Bruce clan. The tartan is thought to have been woven by Anderson of Galashiels and a sample can be found in the STA Dalgety Collection as well as a Lochcarron swatch. The Bruce tartan can be used as a dress tartan, and was also designed for Highland dancing.
The Bruce of Kinnaird Tartan features a variety of colors including pink, white, blue, black, yellow, red, and green. The design is a variant of the Prince Charles Edward Stuart tartan and is believed to have been taken from a coat that was owned by the Bruces of Kinnaird in the mid-18th century. The pattern features thick lines of pink, white, and blue intersected by thinner lines of black and yellow. The red and green threads are used to add depth and texture to the design.
