This tartan cannot be offered for sale, woven or reproduced in any other commercial form without the express permission of the copyright holders – Nick Broad ([email protected]) and Kate Mior ([email protected]) – or their authorised agents, heirs or successors.

Registration notes: This tartan is dedicated to the street performers, and anyone who performs in public spaces for voluntary donations, around the world. The idea was conceived by street performer Kate Mior in conjunction with the Busking Project. The international community themselves agreed on which colours would best represent their culture; black and red are the primary colours, symbolising traditional colours of street theatre costuming; the red also nods to the performer's creative passion and fearlessness; gold represents good fortune and heavy hats in donations; and grey and white were chosen to represent the pavement on which performers do their shows. The grey threads number 24, symbolising how, at any given time of day, a street performer is entertaining an audience somewhere in the world. The adjacent black blocks are comprised of 100 threads, one for each performance perceived busking wisdom suggests are needed to be proficient.
