Our McLean tartan collection includes variations on the traditional Maclean hunting tartan. We like mixing things up a bit, adding a contemporary twist to a traditional design, especially by using colour. In this collection we have used the traditional Maclean hunting tartan sett, but woven it using a bush green yarn we have dyed to reference the native flora of New Zealand, along with some 'interesting' colour combinations.
We have woven three warps of McLean hunting tartan variations using different kinds of woollen yarn, so you are sure to find something to love.
Maclean of Duart Hunting
We have based our interpretation of the orginal hunting tartan on that of the Clan Maclean of Duart. It is the oldest recorded tartan in Scotland with a description included on a charter for lands of Nerrabolsadh on Islay in 1587. Traditionally this tartan would be worn for more casual occasions, and the Maclean dress tartan (see left) for formal occasions.
