Sh Yn Design Plaid Pattern Style Part 2

Plaid @ Tartan Pattern is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. The patterns were simply different regional checked-cloth patterns, chosen by the wearer's preference – in the same way as people nowadays choose what colours and patterns they like in their clothing, without particular reference to propriety. It was not until the mid-nineteenth century that many patterns were created and artificially associated with Scottish clans, families, or institutions who were (or wished to be seen as) associated in some way with a Scottish heritage.
