Scottish Tartan and Highland Dress: A Very Peculiar History

Scottish Tartan and Highland Dress: A Very Peculiar History

$7.98
Brace yourselves, lads and lassies. A great deal of traditional tartan lore is modern fantasy. Tartan wasn’t originally woven in symbolic clan colors. It’s not uniquely Highland. And the tartans we know and love today—bright, crisp, multicolored and minutely varied—aren’t especially old. Aye, right? Discover the entertaining truth about tartans, belted plaids, kilts and trews, from their origins and outlawing, to their rescue and reinvention by ambitious weavers, King George IV, Queen Victoria and the British Army. A wild and wooly tale to amuse and inform you. Hardcover, 4¼" x 6¼"; 192 pages, with color illustrations.
