Tartan Details - Robinson Dress (Pendleton) #1

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Robinson Dress (Pendleton) #1" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 739
STWR ref: 739
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/2002
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Scottish Tartans Society records state: 'From Pendleton: 'of Irish and Scottish origin this tartan is ancient and is worn on great family occasions by the clan. The maroon shade is the royal or styrian purple.' What historical evidence this is based on is not known but it's highly unlikely to have any substance since there is no evidence of tartan in the Irish world. Having said that however, the tartan seems to have been seized upon by/for Robinsons and no amount of academic huffing & puffing can undo that. Inquirie have been made at Pendleton of Oregon (May 2006)

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.
