Colour: Purple Tartan From a modern palette and Dark Brown Leather trim. (MacIntyre & Thomson Special Weave)
(Modern Palette: Tartans woven in modern colours are characterized by darker and more vivid shades, the advent of chemical dyes in the mid-1800s introduced the possibility of stronger and more brighter shades and were popular with the Victorians, because of their liking for strong and vibrant colours.)
Other colours available:
Blue Tartan, from an Ancient Palette with a Dark Brown Leather trim,
(Ancient Pallet: In the 1950s weavers began to create lighter toned variants once the novelty of strongly toned modern dyestuffs were stating to ebb. The lighter tones often make a Tartans sett (pattern) easier to distinguish.)
Brown – (muted tones) Reproduction Palette with a Dark Brown Leather Trim.
(Reproduction Pallet: Authentic in colour and design to those Tartans worn in 1745 and before. They have a soft muted effect as in those earlier times when vegetable sources provided the dyers raw materials such as lichen, moss, and alder bark.)
