Bowtie in Isle of Skye Tartan
Made of pure wool in a light weight tartan (Reiver 10 oz. fabric) by Lochcarron of Scotland. With a heritage dating back to 1892, Lochcarron of Scotland is the world’s leading manufacturer of tartan. Proudly made in Scotland by skilled craftsmen and women who design, dye, warp, weave, mend and tailor traditional Scottish tartans and textiles.
The neck strap fastens at the side with a latch and is fully adjustable. It is ideal to wear with matching kilt or trews for a formal event like a wedding. It could also be worn with a matching Cummerbund and black tuxedo or with a tartan waistcoat.
This beautiful tartan was instigated and registered by Mrs Rosemary Nicolson Samios in 1992, an Australian of Skye descent, now living in Skye. It was selected through a worldwide competition won by Angus MacLeod from Lewis. Angus, a weaver to trade, produced the first commercial quantities in traditional kilt weight in 1993 at Lochcarron Weavers in North Strome, within view of the Cuillin Mountains. The colours of the tartan depict those of the island, often called the Misty Isle
Bow Dimensions: Length 12cm x Width 6cm.
