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

STA ref: 7526
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: "According to the folks at the 1000 Islands Inn, it was designed by a local person, possibly in the 1970s, and manufactured by a Scottish company that is now unfortunately out of business!" Further research states: " It was a Grindstone summer resident, Emily Post, who was a weaver who designed the plaid known as the Thousand Island Tartan." Grindstone is one of the 'Thousand Islands' just across the water from Clayton. This is not thought to be the famous etiquette author Emily Post who died in 1960. Light blue is for the skies and grey granite of the islands, dark blue for the rivers, green for the trees and orange for the beautiful rainbows visible from the islands. Infromation from John Fitzpatrick's 2008 review of Canadian tartans and some US border tartans. Colours are as specified in CIDD but the graphic shown here is estimated from a poor computer graphic. JF's estimated count from a CIDD drawing is: B/40 LB6 O6 K6 LB6 RUST2 LB6 G32 RUST2 B/6.

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.
