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: This asymmetric tartan was developed by Daphne Malins, a founding member of the Desert Sage Weavers and Spinners Guild of the South Okanagan which is near the Canada/United States border. It was registered in 1978 with CIPO and samples are lodged with museums of Penicton and Oliver (infro from Guild of Canadian Weavers' Exchange in 2006 and CIPO). The colours represent those of the Okanagan Valley: light olive for sage brush, white, yellow and pink for the snow, sunshine and blossoms, khaki and green for tree trunks and orchard grass and the two blues for the haze over the valley and the colkours of the many lakes. The colours were originally obtained by hand-dyeing. Was originally woven by Fraser & Kirkbright of Vancouver.

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.
