The Scottish Highlands, the mountainous part of Scotland associated with Gaelic culture; from the spectacular moorland, rivers and woodlands to the quality knitting wools and woven textiles to the world renowned plaids – tartans–of the Scottish clans worn for kilts and other highland dress, colours, textures and inspiration abounds. Tartan fabrics are woven in various weights, all of which are a good quality option for pretty much any type of furnishing. There is a huge range of designs and colourings available in more or less recognisable pattern. Any one tartan might be woven in various colourways: traditional, ancient, modern. Textiles from the lowlands are simple, more rustic and subtle, such as Shepherd check.
