#TartanThursday #BraeVal- Do you know what a #tartan symbolizes?

Jun 1 - Happy Birthday to the state of Tennessee, The Volunteer State, with the Tennessee State tartan for Tennesseans everywhere!

State Motto: "Agriculture and Commerce"

Entered the Union: June 1, 1796

The project to name an official state tartan for the State of Tennessee was spearheaded by members and officers of the Heart of Tennessee Scottish Celebration. In acknowledgment of Tennessee’s Scottish heritage, Chapter 82 of the Public Acts of the 101st General Assembly in 1999 designated the state of Tennessee’s official state tartan as the design adopted by the Heart of Tennessee Scottish Celebration in conjunction with all the other Scottish Societies in Tennessee. The design is a symmetrical tartan set, using the following colors: natural white, dark green, purple, red, and dark blue. The colors represent: Green for Agriculture; Blue for the Smoky Mountains; Purple for the State Flower, the Iris; Red for Sacrifices of Veterans & Pioneers of the Volunteer State; and White to symbolize the 3 Grand Divisions of the State of Tennessee.

This is probably the oldest specimen in our collection, it is certainly a pre-’45 piece and may well be considerably older, possibly 17th century. Little is known about it beyond the fact the it was dug up during peat cutting in Glen Affric some 80+ years ago.

We will be loaning the piece to the V&A Dundee for their Tartan Exhibition next year and are taking the opportunity to try and get some dye analysis carried out at the same time in order to try and narrow down the age. Green. Brown and black 9or dark brown) stripes are evident but the ground colour(s) appear to be stained from the peat and their original colour is unknown at this stage. Potentially, this is a piece of a lower-class Highlander’s cloth, so very different in quality and colour than the majority of the early surviving specimens which are generally associated with those better off.

May 30 - the US Marine Corps tartan for Memorial Day Weekend (US)!

Motto: "Semper Fidelis"

This tartan is one of a series of US Military tartans woven by the Strathmore Woollen Company of Forfar (and also Locharron), for the Marine Corps Historical Foundation (although it has no official US Military recognition). Designed in 1986 by Bob Hall of Tallahassee, USA and Ruraidh MacLeod of Auchtermuchty (a member of the Scottish Tartans Society) it is intended for the US Marine Corps, founded on the 10th of November 1775 by an act of the Continental Congress. A brighter color variant of this tartan by the same designers, "Leatherneck" is also woven by the same mills and is the second of two tartans often sold as a "US Marine Corps" tartan.

For those who died in service to their country, we remember your sacrifice and extend our thoughts and gratitude to the families and loved ones as well.

May 30 - the US Air Force Reserve Pipe Band tartan for Memorial Day Weekend (US)!

Motto: "Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win"

This tartan is one of a series of US Military tartans woven exclusively by the Strathmore Woollen Company of Forfar and adopted by the Band of the Air Force Reserve, Georgia, USA in the early 1990s. Although it has no official US Military recognition, it has been widely accepted by US servicemen and their families with Air Force connections as a representative design. Originating as a new design in 1988, it proved popular with one particular customer and gained an unofficial namesake as 'Lady Jane of St Cirus.' Later, the late Robert Kulyn, a retired master sergeant of the USAF and member of the National Trust of Scotland introduced the tartan to the Band who subsequently adopted it.

For those who died in service to their country, we remember your sacrifice and extend our thoughts and gratitude to the families and loved ones as well.

- BRÃEVAL is a Scottish word for the Upland River Valleys that exist between the mountains and rugged brae of the Scottish highlands, where streams and rivers tumble to loch and sea. It is pronounced 'brave-all'. Our designs are inspired by the Highlands of Scotland for all those that love the great outdoors, nature, adventure and to take the road less traveled.

May 23 - Happy Birthday to the state of South Carolina, The Palmetto State, with the States of Carolina tartan for South Carolinians everywhere!

State Motto: "Dum spiro spero Animis opibusque parati" (While I breathe, I hope Ready in soul and resource)

Entered the Union: May 23, 1788

Both North and South Carolina have benefited from large numbers of Scottish immigrants. The Cape Fear River Valley, in particular, was home to a large settlement of Gaelic speaking Highland Scots, among them the famous Flora MacDonald. Many Highlanders had taken oaths of loyalty to the Crown after 1745 and so fought for the Royalists in the American War for Independence. The piedmont and western mountain regions of the Carolinas were settled heavily by Ulster Scots. These were Lowland Scots who migrated to Ulster in the seventeenth century and then later to North America. Many of these Scots-Irish (as they came to be known) would fight for independence in the Revolutionary War. A special tartan for the Carolinas would honor the contributions of these immigrants and their many descendants. Dr. MacDonald's son, Peter MacDonald, of Crieff, Scotland, came up with the design for the Carolina tartan in 1981. Peter MacDonald (pictured) is a renowned expert in tartan history, and is himself a weaver and designer of tartan cloth. He wanted the tartan to be significant to the history of the Carolina colonies. The Carolinas were created by a grant from King Charles II in 1663, but were actually named for his father, Charles I (1600-1649). "Carol" is the Latin form of the name Charles; hence "Carolina" as the name of the colony. Charles II was the last King of Scotland to be crowned at Scone. At that ceremony, held on January 1, 1651, he is said to have worn a jacket with ribbons in the "auld Royale tartan." It is not known what that tartan may have been, but it is theorized that it was a form of what would later be called the Royal Stewart tartan. On May 9, 1991, the North Carolina Legislature adopted the Carolina tartan as the official tartan of the State of North Carolina. Another decade would pass until South Carolina would do the same, passing legislation on June 3, 2002, declaring the Carolina tartan to be the official tartan of the State of South Carolina.
