Tartan Details - Maple Leaf

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

STA ref: 2034
STWR ref: 2034
Designer: Weiser, David
Tartan date: 01/01/1964
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Restrictions: Yes.
Registration notes: Threadcount has been doubled for clarity. The colours of the maple leaf through the changing seasons became the basis for this asymmetric tartan designed by David Weiser in 1964. Known officially as the Maple Leaf tartan, the pattern incorporates the green of the leaves' summer foliage, the gold which appears in early autumn, the red which appears with the coming of the first frost, and the brown tones of the fallen leaves. Fraser & Kirkbright say (September 2002) it was made for Highland Queen in anticipation of the centenary of Canada's Dominion status in 1867. David Weiser was said to have been in the fashion world for many years. The book 'District Tartans' calls for square in middle of large red to be 'medium green' but all the production that the late William H Johnston saw was medium tan with perhaps a tinge of green. The thread count from Lochcarron swatch 2004. Colours very difficult to match exactly.

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.
