Now that fall is almost here I thought I should add a little plaid to my wardrobe. I did a little digging and found that plaid is actually not the original name for this pattern, it’s actually called tartan. Tartan originated in Scotland and was made of woven wool. As you’ve probably seen, Scottish men would wear tartan kilts and a tartan cloth over the shoulder. In 1782 this became the national dress of Scotland and in the mid nineteenth century colors and pattern began to be associated with clans, families or institutions. And now everyone wears them as a fashion statement :).
