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:

-

Arbroath’s official district tartan was adopted by the Royal Burgh of Arbroath Community Council, 5th Oct 2012. For all, far and near, who have associations with Arbroath.

-

‘Red Lichtie’ is Scottish north east coast dialect for ‘red light’. Residents of Arbroath, a fishing town on the Scottish north east coast, are affectionately known as ‘Red Lichties’, an ancient nickname that local Arbroathians, as well as those abroad, adopt with a sense of pride.

-

Shrouded in folklore, with different stories being told through the ages, one notable tale is of the ‘Round O’ window of Arbroath Abbey being lit at night with a flame guiding seamen returning from sea. Such a light would certainly have shown mariners where Arbroath was but any ship using it would find itself running aground somewhere east of the actual harbour entrance.

-

More likely the name originates from Arbroath’s original Parish Church, known as the Lady Chapel. Founded some time before 1455 and located at the north east corner of the marina where the Harbour Master’s office stands today, the chapel fell out of use around 1590.

-

Inside the chapel there burned a red lamp. It is suggested that the folk of Arbroath were familiar with this red lamp or ‘licht’, which is the likely source of the ‘Red Lichtie’ name which they are today all so proud of.

-

Colours:

The white, scarlet and red depict the ‘Red Licht’ and the blues represent the maritime and fishing histories of Arbroath; dark blue representing deep water, the boat building and shipping industries; light blue representing shallow water and the fishing industry; red represents the red sandstone of Arbroath Abbey, and other buildings of the town; the five gold lines (converging on a red background) represent the iconic portcullis (the primary element in the Arbroath Coat of Arms), which used to be located at the entrance of Arbroath Abbey; the maroon shade represents the Arbroath FC, historically also known as ‘The Red Lichties’.

-

Founded in 1878 the club adopted a plain maroon jersey, inspired by the prominent local red sandstone. This remaining their colour ever since.
