Charles Rennie Mackintosh tartan registered

A tartan in honour of Charles Rennie Mackintosh has been registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans. From the register entry:

Designed by an ex-student of the Glasgow School of Art who has been involved in many Mackintosh related projects. The designer wished to produce a design for the Year of Homecoming based on Mackintosh's tile motifs and this has been re-interpreted so that it can also be produced as a tartan. In particular, the design echoes Mackintosh's nine square motif.

The tartan may only be woven with the authorisation of the designer, Charles Randak.


To view the design, and for further information on Scottish tartans, visit www.tartanregister.gov.uk/tartanDetails.aspx?ref=10047
