A Scottish Tradition - Tailors and Kiltmakers, Tartan and Highland Dress since 1868 by Deirdre Kinloch Anderson OBE
For over 150 years the

story and the role they have played in Scottish clothing, tartan and textiles.
The book has nine chapters, and 160 pages, all richly illustrated in full colour, dealing with:
Highland Dress and its history
The heritage of Kinloch Anderson
Uniforms for the Services
Highland Dress in Modern Times
Scottish Dress for Ladies
Early marketing history, exporting and brand development
The Global Impact of Tartan
A walk round the fascinating Kinloch Anderson Heritage Room at the Company's Edinburgh HQ in Leith.
