Tartan Details - Thomas of Wales

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

STA ref: 5763
STWR ref: none
Designer: Daniel, Shiela
Tartan date: 01/01/2002
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Restrictions: Yes. May only be woven and marketed by Wales Tartan Centres.

Design number: 3003796 registered with the Intellectual Property Office.
Registration notes: According to the WTC variants are: Thoms, Tombs, Tomlinson, Thompkins, Thompson. Despite there being no known tradition of tartan in Wales, this is one of a growing series of commercial Welsh 'name' tartans marketed by the Wales Tartan Centre in Cardiff. Their inclusion in this Index does not confer upon them any historical or genealogical credibility and the use of the words 'of Wales' is not of conventional territorial significance but is purely to identify the source and thus avoid confusion with surnames which have a genuine tartan connection. Designed for Wales Tartan Centres in Swansea +44 (0)1792 474685. They're unusual in that almost all of them incorporate odd numbered threads and have quite different warp & weft, both in thread numbers and sometimes colours. This places the classification of some of them as tartans in some doubt.

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.
