Tartan Details - Isle of Harris

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

STA ref: 6198
STWR ref: 2981
Designer: Beartas
Tartan date: 01/01/2002
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: Beartas was formed by a group of 6th year pupils of the Sir E Scott School at Tarbert on the Isle of Harris to develop, market and sell the Isle of Harris tartan as part of the Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) Company Programme. Their project won the 2003 Young Enterprise UK Award at the Savoy Hotel in London in July 2003. The school has 150 pupils in all. Thread count quadrupled and dubious until larger sample is received. It was taken from a Harris Tweed necktie with a full sett of only 2.5 centimetres. In some weavings the black may be dark/navy blue.

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.
