    • 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 tartan when compared to wool.

      Nevertheless it is a stunning Scottish-made silk. Perfect for amazing dresses or your wedding Arisaid. And beautiful in Sashes, Scarves & Stoles. Popular for Bow-Ties & Cummerbund sets with a difference if you are inclined to invest.


    • 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, the most common problem is the selection and approval of a suitable name. Also, some designs prove to be un-weavable technically. So consultation and adjustment may be necessary before application can be attempted.

      How we help?

      Our service includes creating the Weavers Ticket using thread and yarn counts, without which tartan cannot be produced. The HOUSE of TARTAN provides expert guidance and interacts with the Registrar and respective mills to resolve any issues - including recommendations to get you the best-looking result. Also to ensure the size of the sett and weight of cloth is appropriate for the products you plan to use it for.

      What will the Register say about your Tartan?

      Once it is established that your design is weavable, and doesn’t infringe on other existing tartans, registration application can commence. Around this stage we will ask you to provide us with 'the Rationale' behind the colours, layout or name you’ve chosen. This will become the narrative alongside your entry in the register. We encourage clients to give this careful thought and create a succinct, objective rationale. Be aware that all information you publish about the tartan you seek to register will remain in SRT database and in the public domain for as long as records exist.

      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?

      At present one does not actually have to have a tartan woven into fabric to get a design registered, although legislation to change this does get perennially raised. At House of Tartan we encourage new tartan design owners to weave if they can. Or at very least create a textile print we can lodge in the National Archive as an acceptable physical sample of your tartan.

      What about Pure Silk Dress fabrics in my tartan?

      Weaving your Tartan into 4 oz Pure Spun Silk (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 fabric Order 5 metres and make up something special. Bear in mind that the Twill-Weave dress silk is expensive, very fine but slippery, so it can be difficult to work with (though dress designers love its drape). So please be aware of this difference when choosing between silk, wool and silk-effect polyester. And when it comes to pure silk, remember that yarn colours often look very different in silk tartan when compared to wool. Nevertheless, it is a stunning Scottish-made silk. Perfect for amazing dresses or your wedding Arisaid. Also beautiful in Sashes, Scarves and Stoles. Also popular for Bow-Ties & Cummerbund sets if you are inclined to invest.

      What about the Original Registration Certificate?

This is held under strict sealed conditions in the National Archives. We will hold one for reference here. The third will come to you. You may wish to keep or display this with your Original Certificate of Registration. (Also available framed alongside a sample of your tartan)
