Registration notes: In the year of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, The Scottish Tartans Authority, with HM The King's approval, designed this tartan in recognition of His Majesty's strong support in preserving the culture and traditions of Highland Dress and Scottish Tartans. The design is based on the Balmoral tartan sett which dates from c.1850. The cloth, first woven in 100% Scottish wool by Lochcarron of Scotland in Selkirk, includes a central stripe motif (one broad and two narrow), a feature of Royal tartans previously worn by His Majesty including the Duke of Rothesay, Duke of Rothesay Hunting & Lord of the Isles Hunting tartans. The colours and shades have been matched to the natural dyes of 18th century specimens in the collection of The Scottish Tartans Authority and so admired by His Majesty.
