Family Tartan

Cashmere scarves and kilts for the clan

This private commission for an American family commemorated their family tree in the tartan design. We produced cashmere scarves for family members to receive as gifts as well as tartan cloth for kilts and tailoring.

Based in the USA, our client commissioned a custom tartan to celebrate the recent generations of their family and enjoy wearing as they all gathered together over the holiday season. Araminta worked with them via email and skype to learn about their roots and create a design that would have personal significance.

The final tartan signifies each generation of the clan in the numbers of checks and stripes in the design, and used a colour palette to tie in with the holiday season. We produced the design in a small run of cashmere scarves for the extended family to receive as thanksgiving gifts, as well as wool cloth that was made into kilts and other tailored items for them to wear at special occasions.
