The John Muir Tartan
The JOHN MUIR tartan was woven to celebrate the 150th. Anniversary of his arrival in America, and the colours chosen to represent what he first saw, and invited us all to see, long before man walked on the moon: “…the fragile earth spinning silently through infinite space.”
The Royal Navy Tartan
‘For those in Peril on the Sea’
The design of the Royal Navy tartan encompasses those colours historically associated with the Senior Service: red, white and blue for the various ensigns, royal purple for its title, and all in a setting of navy blue: the sea, the endless sea.
As such it is intended to provide a common bond between ‘sailors’ regardless of rank, and an identity for informal occasions, and even everyday wear.
