Registration notes: The tartan was designed by Tom Bain and Ken MacDonald of Houston Kiltmakers in Paisley. It was a gift from Tom’s parents to celebrate his 50th year. The tartan was designed using colours of personal significance to Tom: blue and white for his Scottish homeland; a blue to symbolise the oceans between his birth home and current home in Australia; blacks and greys to reflect the dark weather patterns of Scotland. This tartan reflects Tom’s piping connections with Chorley and Perth Highland Pipe Bands. Tom dedicates this tartan to his parents Tom & Lucy Onions of Gartcosh near Glasgow, his wife Sue and his children, Chloe, Sarah, Cameron and TJ (Thomas). This tartan is for Tom’s family and descendants as a legacy for them to use without restriction in the years ahead. Others with the Bain surname are welcome to use this tartan.

Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
