Registration notes: The Silver Fern tartan has been designed by Nadia Savage and Marion Foster in black and silver colours for use by all New Zealanders who celebrate dual nationality and are proud of their Scottish heritage, New Zealanders who would enjoy wearing the kilt or anyone who loves what this kilt represents. The tartan is woven with the Silver Fern emblem associated with New Zealand incorporated in the pleats. Created by Nadia Savage as a gift to her New Zealand born partner, the grandson of Jock Veitch who completed his apprenticeship at Scottish Woollen, March Street Mills, Peebles, in their dye house at Caerlee Mills, in May 1922. Jock continued to work as a dyer in the mills until he left Scotland in February 1925, to travel to New Zealand, South Island. Almost 70 years later, in full circle, his grandson returned to the northern hemisphere and now resides in Scotland.
