Originally woven in 1730 in pure silk as a “Brides Plaid”, this Tartan was discovered in the archive of the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore.
It is most unusual in that it incorporates 8 colours in a very complex pattern, and would have taken great skill to hand weave over 280 years ago.
This multi-purpose fabric is suitable for skirts, trousers, jackets as well as soft furnishings such as curtains, cushion covers and upholstery.
