Tartan wrapping paper can also be a gift in itself. Perfect to use for so many occasions …and you won’t find this in the shops, or on the High Street! Gifts will look neat and tidy, without any creases. Finished with a slight grainy finish providing a wholesome, handmade look.

As the paper is glossy, sticky tape can be removed relatively easily so the gift wrap can be kept even after the present is opened.

MADE FROM DURABLE PAPER…
Each roll of custom gift wrap is printed and cut by hand by my expert print partner. Made from, high-quality 140gsm paper, which is very easy to wrap. Because of its thickness and quality, it will not rip or tear when wrapping with it, like many other flimsy generic wrapping papers.

-

CARE INSTRUCTIONS…
Although your print wrapping paper is made from strong paper, my manufacturer still recommends treating it with care to ensure that it does not rip.

Registration notes:

-

The tartan was designed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse, first lit on 1 February 1811.

-

Owned and operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board, the lighthouse lies on the treacherous Inchcape Rock (also called Bell Rock), 11 miles off Arbroath, on the Scottish east coast.

-

Designed and built by John Rennie and Robert Stevenson, but regarded as essentially Robert Stevenson's greatest engineering achievement. The lighthouse stands 35 metres tall. Built with a work force of approximately 110 men, the challenges faced in its construction led to it being described as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Industrial World'.

-

The tartan was approved by the Northern Lighthouse Board and adopted as its official corporate tartan on 12 October 2012.

-

The tartan design reflects the flashing lights of the lighthouse: white for the primary, white light, and red for the secondary, red light (when first put into operation the lighthouse flashed an alternating white and red light).

-

The muted dark blue and black shades represent the treacherous dark North Sea at night. Solid black commemorates the 1000s of lives lost on Inchcape Rock as well as the men who died during the construction of the lighthouse.

-

The geometry of the tartan creates two different impressions of the lighthouse on the horizon: when flashing white and when flashing red. When flashing white, 90 threads between the black and white represent the 90 courses of stone blocks that make up the tower. When flashing red, the lighthouse is represented at a greater distance, standing on the horizon.

-

To build the lighthouse a number of railways were constructed on the rock to transport the massive blocks of stone. The longest railway (terminating towards the west of Inchcape Rock at Hope's Wharf) extended for 290 feet, represented in the pattern of the tartan, which has a total of 290 threads.

-

The Right Honourable Charles Hope, Lord President of the Court of Session, initiated the building of the lighthouse in 1803, when he presented the first bill to Parliament.
