Clan Tartans
Native to Scotland & Ireland, the tartan is a plaid that is specific to a clan, family or district. Though its origins are shrouded in history, it is likely that the clan tartan we know today evolved from the district tartan.

Consider that the local weaver would produce a length of cloth and the residents of that area would all wear the same plaid. Since clans & families also tended to be regional, the tartan would then come to represent the family in that area.

After the rebellion of Charles Edward Stuart, Highland expression and the Tartan in particular was prohibited by law. The growing Highland Regiments were amongst the few allowed to wear it, largely in new patterns.
