Eighteenth Century Tartans

A lot of people share the same dream and would love to wear their own tartan one day. I understand tartan as a beautiful kind of art. The tartan designs I create are for the ones with great sympathy for the culture of the Gaels of the Highlands and Islands.


The service I offer includes tartan design and consultancy, based on my modest knowledge about 18th century tartans, as a result of more than twenty years of research. The basic service fee is € 450,00 and includes the components as follows:


+ Provision knowledge and answering queries regarding the designing process
Tartan design
+ based on historically correct specifications and facts
+ in connection with the wishes of the client
+ mid 18th century style

+ Request and processing of the application form
+ Negotiating the criteria of the design
+ further correspondence with the Register of Scottish Tartans


When registering, please note that a positive decision, by the Register of Scottish Tartans, can not be guaranteed. The registration fee of
£ 70.00 needs to be paid by the client.

Additional design work and / or questions to be clarified will be charged at an hourly rate of Euro 50,00. This option is useful if the client has already created a tartan design and only asks for advice in terms of authenticity.
