Register of Tartans revamped

Thanks to Alison Diamond for the following:

The Scottish Register of Tartans has recently been revised and new facilities are now available at to help you search the official Register of Tartans more effectively.

We have expanded the options for searching the contents of the Register, allowing you to search for tartans with a particular colour order or with a predominant base colour. You can still search by tartan name, reference, category or designer.

An additional facility has also been developed so that you can use a known threadcount to compare your design against all the tartans already included on the Register. You may wish to use this facility to identify other similar tartans already registered before you submit an application to register a new tartan.

Please take time to visit the Register and try out these new developments.

We welcome your comments on these new facilities (positive and negative) and invite your suggestions for other facilities that we can consider developing. Please email: or write to:
