Tartan Details - Craig

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

STA ref: 1574
STWR ref: 1574
Designer: Hastie, McGregor John
Tartan date: 01/01/1957
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: MacGregor Hastie wrote, ''This tartan was designed by me to meet a long felt want. Many people have asked if there was a Craig family tartan, and as the name is not connected with any Highland clan, yet the family name is numerous, it seemed a good idea to design one. The design is based on the general colour of craigs and rocks.'' The grey was originally flecked to represent granite. The Craig tartan is now in general production. Previous notes included: Designed by MacGregor-Hastie circa 1957 at the request of a customer of the Scotch House in Knightsbridge, London. The other reported Craig is said to have originated with the Earl of Mar allowing the Craigs to add the colour red to his own black and white tartan. Jack Dalgety notes say Hastie wove the first piece on his own loom and thereafter it was woven by D.C. Dalgliesh. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Dalgety Collection. Lochcarron sample.

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.
