Registration notes: In the early 20th century the Okhai family emigrated from India to Malawi from where, in 1966, 26 year-old Ibrahim Okhai emigrated to Dundee. There, his determination and business acumen soon enabled him to bring his parents and siblings to join him. After years of hard work and business advancement, he acquired the failing James Keiller factory which he built into a world-renowned brand that was given a Queen’s Award for Export. After selling the company, the family ventured into many other business areas in Dundee and founded the Aydya Group. This Okhai family tartan is based on the Dundee design and with its orange ‘strands’,’ highlights the family’s marmalade beginnings. The white on blue is for the Saltire flag and the family’s passion for their adopted country. Orange is also the house colour of the Aydya Group and the black squares comprise 66 threads to commemorate the family’s ‘first foot’ in Scotland.
