Tartan Details - Wombles #4

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Wombles #4" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1783
STWR ref: 1783
Designer: Wombles International
Tartan date: 01/01/1970
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: The Wombles were a very popular children's TV programme during the 1970s. They were small furry animal puppets that lived in burrows on Wimbldon Common and came out at night to clean up the rubbish left by people. Scottish Tartans Society records state that Wombles International, of Jacob's Well Mews, London, patented this design which is a variant of the Jacobite tartan. The status of the other Wombles recorded here are in doubt - they are possibly design exercises produced before settling on #4775. A note of caution: #6077 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) is a count taken from an actual sample which differs quite a bit from the other reported 'Wombles' setts.

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.
