    • SILK

      Weaving your Tartan into Silk (see Wool options above)

      This is as unique as it gets. And although pricey and a long wait (6 months or more), it is a very special item and worth the wait. Select an accessory option or order 5 metres and make up something special.

      Bear in mind that the Twill-Weave dress silk is very fine and extremely strong, so it can be difficult to work (though your dress maker will love it). So please acquaint yourself with this aspect before choosing silk instead of wool. And remember that yarn colours can look different in silk compared to wool.

      Nevertheless it is a stunning Scottish-made silk. Perfect for that amazing dress or your wedding Arisaid. And beautiful in Sashes, Scarves & Stoles. Popular for Bow-Ties & Cummerbund sets with a difference.

  5. Registering & Naming your Tartan.

    Why Protect your design?

    If you are serious about your tartan, it makes sense to name and register it with the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT). This ensures your design remains unique to you, your organisation or your heirs. The SRT is now Scotland’s only official Tartan Register and is administered by the National Archives of Scotland.

    What does it cost?

    You can apply through the House of Tartan or directly yourself. Registration through us costs £145. This includes the cost of the SRT’s Statutory Application fee of £70; a frame-able Certificate; to showcase a cutting from your first weaving and our processing charges. We‘ve created hundreds of tartans for clients worldwide.

    What problems might one expect?

    A new design may not proceed through registration if conflicts or issues affect its register-ability. Besides any similarity issues, another common problem is the selection and approval of a suitable name. Also, some designs prove to be un-weavable technically. So consultation with you adjustment is necessary before application can be attempted.

    How we help?

    Our service includes devising the Weavers Ticket, without which a tartan cannot be produced. The HOUSE of TARTAN provides expert guidance and interacts with the Registrar and mill to resolve such issues – including recommending improvements to get the best looking result.

    Once it’s established your design is actually weavable, registration application can be submitted. At this stage we’ll ask you to provide us with 'the Rationale' behind the colours or name you’ve chosen. This will become the narrative alongside your entry in the register. Ask about House of Tartan’s Registration Guidelines

    How long does Registration take?

    Between 4 and 6 weeks, depending on complexity.

    Do I have to get my tartan woven in order to get it registered?

    Incredibly, at the moment one does NOT have to actually have a tartan woven into fabric to get one’s design registered! We at the House of Tartan are of the belief that it’s not a tartan unless it’s been woven into a tartan, so anticipate fresh legislation to correct this glaring oversight.

    What about the Original Registration Certificate?

    After first weaving, we take three physical cuttings of your new tartan. One to be lodged with the Scottish Register of Tartans on your behalf, one to go to the Scottish Tartans Authority and the other to you for safe-keeping with the Original Certificate. (Available framed)
