Tartan Details - Hughes of Wales

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Hughes of Wales" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 5756
STWR ref: none
Designer: Daniel, Sheila
Tartan date: 01/01/2002
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Restrictions: Yes. Consent to be obtained from Wales Tartan Centres, Swansea prior to weaving.

Registration notes: The tradition of wearing the Cilt in Wales (spelt with a ‘C’ as there is no K in the Welsh language) is more of a recent thing and while seen as commercial, has grown massively in popularity since being introduced by Wales Tartan Centres circa 1998. As with many tartans today, their inclusion in this index does not confer upon them historical or genealogical credibility and the use of the words 'of Wales' is not of conventional territorial significance but is purely to identify the source and confirm the origin of the design. Designed for Wales Tartan Centres by Sheila Daniel of Cambrian Woollen Mill, Powys (now sadly closed). They're unusual to other Celtic tartans in that almost all of them incorporate odd numbered threads and have quite different warp & weft, both in thread numbers and sometimes colours.
Information notes: This tartan was recorded prior to the Scottish Register of Tartans’ inception and the different warp and weft threadcount for this tartan would not now be accepted for registration.

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.
