Designer wrapping paper exclusive to the Tartan Artisan ®. Featuring the North Sea Oil ® Tartan, created in 2013 ...paying tribute to the North Sea Oil and Gas Industry. Not only recognising the economic significance of oil, Scotland's black gold, but also remembering the challenges and personal sacrifices made by oil and gas workers in the industry.

-

This elegant, custom printed wrapping paper is made from thick 140gsm luxurious paper. Handmade and finished with a satin gloss the paper showcases my tartan to perfection. Printed in the highest quality with fine details, colours and stitches beautifully reproduced.

-

Also available in a larger kilt sett size, on the square

-

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 pays tribute to the North Sea Oil and Gas Industry.

-

It not only recognises the economic significance of oil, Scotland's Black Gold, but also remembers the challenges and personal sacrifices made by oil and gas workers in the industry.

-

The tartan celebrates Brendan McKeown OBE (1925-2011), the petroleum engineer famously credited with bringing ashore the UK's first sample of North Sea Oil in a pickle jar on the 16th September 1969. This inaugural finding of the first commercialised North Sea oil well was recognised as a seminal moment in Scotland's industrial history.

-

North Sea Oil was established as a commemorative tartan 45 years after this historic discovery, on the 16th September 2014.

-

The tartan importantly acts as a memorial in remembrance of the many lives lost in the hazardous offshore environment - the ‘flame of remembrance’ in the geometry respectfully remembering Piper Alpha 6th July 1988, the world's deadliest offshore oil accident.

-

The geometry further depicts the exploration, discovery and development of North Sea oil and gas fields.

Colours:

black, russet brown and gold together create the colour palette of raw crude oil, the gold accent alluding also to the flare boom of the North Sea oil rigs;

dark blue - also when woven together with black - represents the North Sea and associated gas industry;

the light and dark grey stripes depict the sedimentary nature of the sea bed, with three prominent lighter grey stripes significantly representing the three castles of Aberdeen City's coat of arms.

-

Due to this enterprising city's contribution to the development and commercialisation of North Sea Oil, it became known as the Oil Capital of Europe.
