The Green and Red - Hunting tartan

The colours are said to have come from nature again - this time the rowan tree (mountain ash) - its green leaves and orange/red berries. This plant is the hunting badge of the clan. The tartan consists of a green backbround with seven red check lines. This is usually obtainable by yard/metre from tartan shops.

A paler version of green and more orange red is called the ancient hunting. It gives the appearance of the colours being produced by natural plant dyes. This will usually have to be ordered.

This cloth will usually have to be ordered and minimum orders are likely to be seven to eight yards - quantity for a man’s kilt.
