This series of Tartan Notebooks celebrates Scottish Traditions – the many unique features of Scotland and its people. History, clans and tartans, the landscape of Scotland – hills, glens, mountains, lochs and rivers guarded by the many castles and strongholds of Scotland, some ancient and ruined, but each one full of history, with a story to tell.
Kinloch Anderson: The tartan cloth is supplied by and produced with the authority of Kinloch Anderson Scotland, holders of Royal Warrants of Appointment as Tailors and Kiltmakers to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.
Kinloch Anderson has created its own exclusive range of tartans which are available to all. They are based on the sett of the Clan Anderson tartan. The name Anderson means son of Andrew and Kinloch means head of the loch. The Black and White Tartan responds to the infinite appeal of these two universally popular colours. Black and white reflect the image of Scotland in The Black Grouse, The Black Capercaillie and Scotland’s Puffins – found on Scottish coasts and islands. The Black Isle, The Black Lochs and the White Loch are examples which also take their names from these colours. Early weavers used local plants and natural products for their dyes so the locality of the weaver affected the colours of the local tartan. Black and white is a popular tartan to wear for weddings and celebrations.
Commonplace notebooks date back to the Scottish Enlightenment. Many thinkers and writers used a Commonplace notebook for writing down ideas and knowledge. Adam Smith, Robert Burns, David Hume, and later, writers such as Sir Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Virginia Woolf used commonplace notebooks.
