There are three types of tartan associations: (1) Clan/related family, (2) Organizational, and (3) Regional tartans. Each of the 200+ Scottish clans have multiple tartans. For example, a clan may have a modern tartan, an ancient tartan, a tartan for formal occasions, another for hunting, or a tartan that is woven in more muted colors. Additionally, all of these different tartans can be woven in heavy (16 oz) medium (13 oz) and light (11oz) weight fabric. Traditional kilts are made using heavy (16 oz) weight fabric, but utility kilts sometimes use lighter tartans and fabrics, like denim. We present you with each one of those tartans and in each weight available, as options. Organizations, like the 5 U.S. military service branches, firefighters, police, clergy, or several of the various regiments in the UK and Canada, also have associated tartans. Regionally, there are overall national tartans for Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the USA, and Canada. Some regions in Scotland and many Irish counties have associated tartans. With this introduction, here’s how to use What’s My Tartan to find your best option to wear and celebrate your heritage, life, and experience.
