Tartan Details - Hislop/Hyslop Hunting

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Hislop/Hyslop Hunting" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 2137
STWR ref: 2137
Designer: Dalgliesh, D C
Tartan date: 01/01/1992
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Restrictions: Yes. Prepared for weaving by D C Dalgliesh Ltd.
Registration notes: Scottish Tartans Society notes: 'Based on the Brodie tartan which Mr Hyslop, who commissioned the design, remembered being worn by his grandfather. Other elements in the sett come from the tartans of the families in the district around Hawick which is associated with the Hislop name. The Hyslop spelling is known further west in Galloway and SW Scotland.' The name 'Highland Fling' has been noted in connection with this tartan but nothing further is known - suspect it is a north American fashion manufacturer. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Johnston Collection labelled Dalgliesh 1994. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority Dalgety Collection.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
