The Waverley Kinloch Anderson large notebook/journal is hardback, 21cm x 13cm, with 192 pages (80gsm acid-free, FSC), and bound in the Kinloch Anderson tartan. The tartan is a rich combination of earthy browns, greens and golds, with a bold vein of dark red.
Anderson was founded in 1868 when William Anderson, a tailor and maker
of fine clothing, opened his first prestigious shop in George Street,
Edinburgh. From modest beginnings, the company has achieved a unique
place in the Scottish textile and fashion industry, managed by the sixth
generation of the family.
For a century-and-a-half, Kinloch Anderson has been instrumental in maintaining the status of Highland dress. In the 20th century, the company developed an expertise in military tailoring and made officers’ uniforms for all the Scottish regiments. Kinloch Anderson is now a worldwide lifestyle heritage brand identifying itself as “British Style – Scottish Character”.
There has been a long and unbroken tradition of supplying the British Royal Family, beginning with King Edward VII in 1903. The company is proud to have Royal Warrants of Appointment as tailors and kiltmakers to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and HRH The Prince of Wales.
Deirdre Kinloch Anderson, a director of the company, was the leading architect of the official Scottish Register of Tartans. Until 2009, the recording of tartans was carried out by private organisations. Deirdre led the project to ensure that the recording and codification of tartans was placed in the public domain, safeguarding Scotland’s tartan heritage in perpetuity. It took seven years and a Private Member’s Bill to enable the establishment of the register, held within the National Archives of Scotland.
Kinloch Anderson has created its own exclusive range of tartans, available to all, which includes the design pictured above – the Kinloch Anderson Tartan.
