A symbol of Scotland's heritage. Originally born as a way to identify where you came from, Scots would use natural resources, including berries, seaweed and bark, found locally to dye the yarns that would make up their tartan. This is how the first incarnation of the famous Clan and District tartans began. Those tartans quickly became synonymous with Scots and the Highland way of life. In the aftermath of the Jacobite Rising in 1746, the British Parliament outlawed the wearing of traditional Highlandwear in the hopes of quashing Scottish pride. Although tartan wasn’t officially banned during this time, with the main outlet for tartan being outlawed, it’s almost certain that some tartans disappeared from existence. This was repealed in 1782 and tartan was adopted as Scotland's symbolic national dress.
The Spirit of Scotland Ancient Tartan features a unique and eye-catching pattern that combines bold stripes with intricate details. The tartan is constructed from the highest quality 100% original acrylic wool, ensuring that it is both durable and comfortable to wear. One interesting fact about the Spirit of Scotland Ancient Tartan is that it was the first tartan to be registered by the Scottish Tartans Authority in the 21st century. The tartan has also been used in a variety of ways, including as a symbol of Scottish pride and heritage, as well as in fashion and home decor.
