The Secret Life Of Tartan
How much do we really know about tartan ? This lavishly illustrated book explores tartan’s origins, its links with art, landscape, contemporary culture and the outlaws of history. It goes behind the scenes - and beyond the kilt - to stitch together the truth of this most majestic of cloths, from supermodels to clan patriarchs, from New York’s Tartan March to wedding finery. Author Vixy Rae took over Stewart Christie & Co, an Edinburgh fine garment institution which was previously run by four generations of men named Duncan Lowe and she is the first female member of The Incorporation of Edinburgh Tailors.
