Tartan Details - Elliot

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

STA ref: 596
STWR ref: 596
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1880
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: First recorded in the 1880 Clans Originaux and then by the Johnstons in their, 'The Tartans of the Clans and Septs of Scotland' (1906), along with many others in use at the time. The colouring is unique among traditional tartans, being described as maroon and blue. The Elliots are a 'Border Clan', founders of the Minto family. The Chiefship once belonged to the Elliots of Redheugh but passed to the Elliots of Stobs near Hawick in Roxburghshire. The present (2007) Chief is Mrs Margaret Elliot of that Ilk. Original threadcount tripled to show sett. In 1993 Andrew Elliot (Elliot Fine Fabrics - Weavers) of Selkirk produced - for the Chief - an evening version with a smaller sett and the blue changed to midnight blue. D.C. Dalgliesh of Selkirk wove various items in silk in the evening sett.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
