Heraldry - The Tartans Of Clan Matheson


A tartan is defined not simply by colour, but by the pattern of threads in warp and weft (the sett). The Scottish Tartans Society recognises six Matheson “setts” dating from 1805 to 1977. Of these, the Clan Chief recognises the red dress tartan and the dark green hunting tartan.
