Tartan Details - Sin-Cos

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Sin-Cos" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10094
Designer: James Leonard
Tartan date: 18/10/2009
Registration date: 10 November 2009
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: James Leonard designed based the Sin-Cos tartan on the Red Ramsay (as a tribute to Mrs Ramsay)and added a yellow stripe from the Cameron tartan as a tribute to Lindsay Cameron Nomiyama Kawai. The base is green as green is the Sin-Cos colour. The Sin-Cos Group was started in 1982, and named because its staff always went off at a tangent. It's tangents include the Kansai Highland Games, started by the owner of Sin-Cos, Maud Robertson Ramsay Nomiyama in 1989 and the Ramsay Pipeband. Sin-Cos took both these projects and provided them with equipment, funding and personnel. The Kansai St Andrew’s Society celebrate St Andrew’s day with a ball. Mrs Nomiyama, seeing the lack of highland attire at the ball, bought and made kilts which she lent to ball attendees free of charge. The enthusiastic response led to the Sin-Cos Kilt Rental Service. More and more Japanese have begun to use the service for a variety of purposes (weddings, parties, shop displays and even on television). Most recently the Scottish Academy, a nursery school taught to the British curriculum in Osaka, has been established to help British parents with Japanese spouses to educate their children in English.
