Designer: Kat Moore
Tartan date: 22/01/2008
Registration notes: Designed by Kat Moore from Kansas, who is a twelfth generation Chisholm of her American-Scots line. Her rationale for the tartan is as follows: “In order to begin a new life in distant lands, ocean crossings had to be made for most of our families. The blues are representative of the oceans. The brown literally represents the earth of the lands colonized. The Chisholm badge is the fern. The fern green represents our ties to our clan and to Scotland. The blood red represents the blood that all Chisholms, worldwide, share by birth and heritage.” Approved(September 2008) by Chief Hamish Chisholm of Chishom. Woven by D C Dalgliesh, and organised through Duncan Chisholm & Sons Ltd, of Inverness.
