An update for my dear customers…

Inspired by the iconic photograph taken during the Apollo 8 mission, the Earthrise tartan carries a message that resonates more deeply today than ever before. It reminds us of our fragile and precious home, encapsulating the beauty and unity of our planet in the fabric of the weave.

I’m thrilled to report that as well as the dispatch of cloth sales, almost all kilt orders from the 2023/24 weave have been fulfilled and delivered to clients, with only a few remaining as we finalise sizes. The journey to bring the Earthrise tartan back to life, to illuminate its powerful message through the art of tartan, has been nothing short of inspirational to me. 😊

The dynamic effect of the Earth rising in the pleats of the kilt has been particularly well-received, offering a unique and moving tribute to our common humanity and the delicate beauty of our home planet. This design choice has sparked incredible feedback, showcasing the tartan's ability to capture the imagination and hearts of those who wear it.
