Simply the finest tartan available by the world's last artisan tartan weaving mill, deep in the Scottish borders. This robust fabric has a higher thread density than usual, and is ideal for kiltmaking, or also for upholstery, in fact anywhere you'd want a really durable finish.

Before the twentieth century, almost all dyeing used vegetable dyes. The advent of chemical dyes in the mid-1800s introduced the possibility of stronger and brighter shades, which became immediately popular, appealing to Victorian sensibilities with their liking for strong color schemes. Tartans woven in 'Modern Colors' are characterized by darker and more vivid shades.
