Registration notes: A corporate tartan for the Spey fine pearl company based in Washington DC which takes its name from the Scottish river. Spey works to preserve and protect the threatened habitats of native pearl mussels throughout Scotland, particularly within the River Spey. These mussels, now one of the most critically endangered molluscs in the world, are key indicators of water purity and river health. The design takes its inspiration from the traditional estate checks from the Speyside region, woven in the brand colours of crimson, midnight blue and grey. The tartan will be woven into a range of products with a portion of the proceeds dedicated to the protection and restoration of the river and mussel species.
