Designer wrapping paper exclusive to the Tartan Artisan ®. Featuring the Red Lichtie Spitfire Tartan, created in 2018 to pay tribute to the Spitfire, the flagship aircraft of the RAF, and specifically Arbroath's Red Lichtie Spitfire EP121.

-

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 was created to pay tribute to the Spitfire, the flagship aircraft of the RAF, and specifically Red Lichtie Spitfire EP121.

-

During WWII the people of Arbroath started a ‘Spitfire Fund’ to raise £5,000 and purchase a Spitfire to help with the war effort. They succeeded in this and a MkVb Spitfire was built at Castle Bromwich Aircraft Factory.

-

On 24th May 1942 Spitfire EP121 was delivered to the RAF at Burtonwood and it was named the ‘Red Lichtie’ after the people of Arbroath who purchased it.

-

The tartan’s creation date and registration date commemorate the 100th anniversary year of the RAF, 1st April 2018 to 1st April 2019, and in so doing also recognises the iconic fighter plane and its key role in winning the Battle of Britain.

-

Colours and geometry: the tartan’s asymmetric design of green and grey represents the spitfire’s camouflage; the red, white, blue and yellow stripes form a representation of the historic RAF roundel and the tail liveries on the aircraft. The single red stripe in the tartan becomes a mark of respect for the ‘Red Lichtie’, which ended its service on the 26th June 1943 suffering from an engine cut on approach causing it to stall and crash.

The pilot survived.
