Tartan Details - Sir Billi

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

STA ref: 6887
STWR ref: none
Designer: Hartmann, Sascha
Tartan date: 01/03/2006
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: After over 3 years of development, fund raising and unrelenting determination, independent producers and creators from Glasgow Animation Ltd, have joined forces with Sir Sean Connery to form 'Billi Productions Ltd', which will produce Connery's first ever voice over role for an animated short feature film. Entitled 'Sir Billi the Vet' and due for completion early next summer, the short feature stars Sir Sean Connery in the lead role, with Tony award winner Alan Cumming co-starring and musical score by Oscar nominated composer and fellow Scot Patrick Doyle. Other voiceovers are provided by high profile actors such as Miriam Margolyes. Richard Briers, Ruby Wax and more. Sascha and Tessa Hartmann, the Scottish based husband and wife team / co-creators from Glasgow Animation fought to bring 'Sir Billi the Vet' to life for years. What began as an illustrated idea in black and white by Sascha Hartmann, has grown into a potentially very exciting animated property, which has been revealed with exclusive 'first look' imagery from the project. This tartan has been faithfully copied and interpreted from Sir Billi's trousers by Fiona Hall of Lochcarron's design department. Created from Sir Billi's tartan overalls.

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.
