Anta_George Street_Edinburgh_Scotland It's Scotland, land of plaid, a.k.a. tartan. tar-tan \ˈtär-tən\ :a traditional Scottish cloth pattern of stripes in different colors and widths that cross each other to form squares. Tartans are more than just a patterned fabric in Scotland - each combination of colors represents a clan / family / region. (According to the Scottish Tartans Museum, there are more than 7000 unique historical tartans.)
