Border Tartan

Written by

Border Tartan Pattern Border tartan is a pattern formed by cross-weaving small dark and light checks. It is much plainer and less colorful than the more well known Tartan textile pattern (also known as Plaid).

Border tartan gets its name because historically it is associated with the region surrounding the Anglo-Scottish border. Border tartan is invariably made from black and white fabric, although historically a more yellowish fabric was used.

Border tartan is much less common than plain tartan, but can occasionally be found on hats and scarves. The novelist Sir Walter Scott was also well known for wearing border tartan trousers.

Border tartan has many names, and is also known as Shepherds' Plaid, Border check, Border Drab, and Northumbrian tartan.
