This design (in Italy is called Scottish) is obtained with threads of different colors that are repeated with a defined pattern, both in the warp and in the same plot. The armor of the loom to weave the tartan twill.
Do not know the exact origin of the use of weaving wool with this design in the Highlands but it certainly is very old. However, only around the sixteenth century, the Scottish tartan assumed the characteristics of today and became a symbol of national identity is extremely widespread in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Until the mid-nineteenth century, the highland tartans were associated with regions and districts rather than to a specific clan. In particular, Martin Martin, in his A Description of the Western Islands of Scotland, published in 1703, wrote that the tartan could be used to distinguish the inhabitants of different regions. The distinction of tartan in connection with several families therefore seems a modern institution created by the fact that the clan used the tartan of the area where they were present. Even today Scottish families that are not connected to any clan tartan of their region using the.
After the battle of Culloden in 1746 the British government banned the use of tartan (with the Act of proscription) to try to oppose the revolt of the Gaelic Jacobite clans.
In 1765, after the war, was introduced in the currencies of Highland Regiments.
In 1815 the Highland Society of London chieftain asked what their tartan and thus was established the connection between an officer and his clan tartan.
In the book, Wilson ‘key pattern book of 1819 had already been collected 250 different tartan, today there are 4,000 registered even if you type in the market are between 600 and 700.
The Clan Tartan:
The clan tartan, tartan or tied to a particular clan, only goes back to the early nineteenth century. Many of these tartans were not in use at the time of the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The registration of official clan tartans began on April 8, 1815, decision of the Highland Society of London (founded in 1778). Many leaders of the clan (clan chiefs), however, had no idea what their tartan, but they were still eager to comply with the instructions received and thus provide examples. The tartan, often designed at that time, thus became an important hallmark of the different clans.
other Tartan:
There are, however , in addition to many other categories of clan tartan tartan register to families , districts , institutions, and also to commemorate special events. Some , however, have taken further meanings . The Duke of Fife Tartan , for example , designed to celebrate the wedding of Alexander Duff , Duke of Fife with the Princess Louise , daughter of Queen Alexandra and diEdoardoVII , is now also known as tartan of the district of Fife and used by families in the region that do not have a particular clan reference . In addition, we reserve the tradition to some Scottish Highland military unit in the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries . Those units associated with the British Royal Family using Royal Stewart Tartan . The Royal Family uses the Balmoral tartan . There are also tartans for the armed forces such as the Royal Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force , but also commercial companies , special groups such as Amnesty International, religious movements (even Hare Krishna) , city , club footbal (including some non-British such as Hammarby IF) , dance companies , non-British Celtic groups , regions of the world with a large presence of Scots.
