Artist's Description

Within each variant you may also see ancient, modern, weathered etc, these names refer to the thread colours; With ancient tartans the threads are dyed to approximate the colours produced by vegetable dyes, modern tartan thread colours use the more vibrant colours of synthetic dyes introduced in the 19th century whereas weathered tartans reproduce the effects of sun bleaching or general weathering on fabric.

If you have no clan or family tartan association (or maybe you just don’t like the colours available) you may want to look at district tartans.

District Tartans:
district tartans most probably pre-date clan tartans in origin. each tartan is associated with a specific district such as Roxburgh, or Fife for example or a city such as Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Glasgow.

District tartans are not exclusive to Scotland, there are many district tartans for other parts of the UK such as Cornwall, Isle of Man and Irish Counties, even Welsh National. Going further afield there are hundreds of district tartans for other countries such as USA, Canada and Australia. There’s even an Antarctic district tartan!

Regimental Tartans
These are tartans adopted worn by Scottish and other regiments around the world. The most well known is Black Watch worn by the 42nd Black Watch Regiment. However, many clan tartans are also regimental tartans such as Cameron of Erracht (Cameron Highlanders 79th of Foot – ) and Leslie (King’s Own Scottish Borderer’s). If you have a regimental connection then maybe a regimental tartan is more appropriate.

Universal Tartans
When every other avenue has been exhausted there are still thankfully the ever growing range of universal tartans to choose from. Hunting Stewart, Black Watch, Caledonian, and Jacobite are the older ones. There are now other more modern tartans such as Scottish National, Brave Heart Warrior, Flower of Scotland and Pride of Scotland. Many of the new tartans have been designed with the wedding market in mind so colours such as purple are quite popular.

Absolutely anyone can wear a universal tartan.

Other types:
Other types of tartan have some restrictions imposed upon their wearing; Royal tartans such Balmoral can only be worn by members of the British Royal Family (although others such as Royal Stewart and Earl of St Andrews have no such restriction. Chief’s tartans should only be worn by the chief of the clan and his family, the only exception being when there is no appointed chief of the clan.
