They can be seen everywhere and everyone associates them with Scottish people. This fashionable textile pattern has become more than a simple piece of cloth. It is a symbol that comes from noble origins dated hundreds of years ago.
A book published in 1703 talked about how this pattern was used to distinguish inhabitants coming from different regions of Scotland based on colors and spacing. Later on, Scottish families adopted particular combinations of colors to represent their clan.
Today, the tartan ribbon can be seen at weddings and events. However, their use has expanded and if once they were used as a means to separate clans, today they gained also a more commercial use. This popular pattern can be seen quite frequently on various wrappings and many manufacturers use them for their products. Even entrepreneurs that sell their own products find the common tartan ribbon as decorative item that illustrates good taste and style.
