Whist the origins of Tartan may be disputed the simple fact is we associate the checkered Plaid with the Scottish Highlands. The modern Tartan has a huge combination of distinctive colours and weaves each depicting the clan or family. We now offer a collection of Highland plaid Tartan rugs designed in range of sizes, colours and qualities, to give your home that traditionally modern look.
Although the designs are without doubt traditional, we have categorised our tartan rugs as modern. This is because the use of the plaid check is used as to accentuate many modern fashions. Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, brought the Royal Stewart check to the fore in the Punk era, today her designs in clothing and home decor still feature many tartan elements. On the rock stage artists Rod Stewart and Axl Rose are patrons of the coloured check.
Use the design sparingly as a contrasting feature or go for a less traditional Burberry style check to give a subtle touch to your home.
