Tartan: Cloth of a Nation

Synopsis
No other country is so readily identified with its national dress as Scotland is with Tartan. Now for the first time on film, its history and industries are placed on record.
The connection between the contemporary wearing of tartan and men’s desire to be associated with groups of like-minded people demonstrates that tartan truly is the Cloth of a Nation.
Made in association with the Scottish Tartans Authority, The Moffat Woollen Mill, and The Weaver’s Cottage Kilbarchan.

Includes an interview with renowned tartan authority, the late James D Scarlett, MBE.
