Tartan Details - Brodie Hunting

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

STA ref: 1334
STWR ref: 1334
Designer: Unknown
Tartan date: 01/01/1880
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: A Brodie Hunting appears in J Claude 'Clans Originaux' (1880). A 'Note by a Tartan Manufacturer' in a very early edition of Johnston's 'Scottish Clans and their Tartans' says: 'The handsome tartan shown as Brodie is really the Hunting Brodie, the Brodie proper has a red ground'. D.W. Stewart noted this 'of late' tartan in 1893 and said it was based on the 'older' dress sett and commented: ' Many Brodies who belonged to the districts occupied by the Gordons, Forbes and others, wore it in early times as the district tartan and more recently in some instances adopted it as their family tartan.' This comment makes sense when it is remembered that bright tartans were known as dress tartans - long before the days when prodominantly white tartans had been 'invented'.
Information notes: Threadcount taken from a woven sample in the Dalgety Collection held by the Scottish Tartans Authority.

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.
