Tar­tan + Tweed

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Books - By Caro­line Young and Ann Martin

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.
