Registration notes: This tartan has been designed exclusively for V&A Dundee to be used as the museum’s tartan. The design takes inspiration from the initial concept pencil sketches for the iconic V&A Dundee building by its architect, Kengo Kuma. The pattern and tonal colour palette reference his pencil sketches of the building, with the addition of a pink overcheck, to recognise Elsa Schiaparelli’s love of her time in Scotland. The tartan was created to celebrate V&A Dundee’s Tartan exhibition in April 2023.
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.
