1. The twists and turns of the traditional plaid・Tartan
Scottish plaid is a plaid pattern in which more than two colors of wool are woven together. If there is a representative of autumn and winter plaid, we should think of Scottish plaid first!
One of the origins of tartan is a word called a tiretaine in French or a tiretana in Spanish. It was later collectively called “tartan” in English.
The origin of the Scots tattoo can be traced back to the Celtic people who lived in the Highlands of northwest Scotland in the third century BC. The Scots pattern was a regular plaid pattern worn daily by the Celts.
By 1707, however, Scotland and England were at war over the succession to the throne. In the end, England won the war, and the English government banned using the plaid, a symbol of the Scottish Highlands. Because the ban dealt a severe blow to the culture of the Scottish tattoo, fortunately, some people were outside the law (e.g., women), and those outside the law worked hard to preserve the traditional plaid, and we can see the Scottish tattoo today.
According to different purposes and purposes, there will be different plaid; for example, some symbolize a regional plaid, a family emblem, etc. Now common in the world, Tartan has been listed on the Scottish Government’s Register for preservation and management. Therefore, anything not registered as a Scottish tattoo cannot be called a tartan.
