Tartan + Tweed
Young and Martin provide a fresh look at the quintessentially Scottish fabrics tartan and tweed. The rich cultural history of these textiles which originated in the Scottish Highlands is explored in this meticulously researched work which draws from first person sources, documents, paintings and fashion photographs. From crofters to fashion houses, the authors detail the impact of these fabrics in Scotland and beyond, both as historical pieces and, increasingly, articles of common culture.
