For some years now our mediumweight range of 32 Irish County tartans and the Irish national tartan have proved extremely popular. As a result they will also now be available as lightweight cloths.

Pattern books for these should be available shortly.
From time to time we launch new tartans and we thought this would be an ideal opportunity to show you some of our more recent creations. We hope you like them. All are available as a mediumweight cloth. Don't hesitate to contact us get in touch should you need more information about any of them.

The Red Hackle Tartan

The Red Hackle Tartan

The Red Hackle tartan has been designed as a tribute to the men and women of The Black Watch, both past and present.

Originally used to identify troops in the midst of battle, there is doubt as to exactly when the Black Watch's unique Red Hackle was adopted by the Regiment. Whether it was first used during the American War of Independence or later during the battle of Geldermaisen campaign on January 5th, 1795, what is beyond dispute, is that in 1822, that the Army's Adjutant General confirmed the unique right of the 42nd Regiment (Black Watch) to wear the Red Hackle in their bonnets. In memory of Geldermeisen, the 5th January subsequently became the regimental day, and is now known as Red Hackle Day.

The new tartan is based on perhaps the world's most recognised textile design, the famous Black Watch tartan, to which a series of overchecks in two shades of red has been added, and was selected from a number of designs submitted to the Black Watch Heritage Trust at Balhousie Castle in Perth.
