What kind of material is tartan?

Tartan, a type of plaid, is a patterned cloth consisting of crisscrossed horizontal and vertical bands, made with warp and weft matches of different, usually bright colours.

Its origin is Scottish, and the different patterns were used to distinguish the members of the clans located in the Highlands of Scotland.
The traditional costume was a combination of a knee-length skirt and a shawl fastened to the shoulder with a clasp.

The weft is woven as a single twill, with the warp passing two threads on top and two on the bottom, advancing one thread at a time. The pattern consists of alternating bands of coloured wool yarns woven at an angle. This forms diagonal cross-hatching at the crossing sites and creates new colours from the mixture of the two original shades.

The intricate patterns and rich history of tartan make it a beloved choice for both traditional and contemporary fashion. Our wool tartan fabrics combine this timeless design with the luxurious feel and durability of wool.
