Texan by Birth, Scot by Ancestry
We were first met Glen Moyer when he interviewed Clare for his podcast, Under the Tartan Sky in 2017. Through his podcast he gives a voice to Scottish causes, businesses, hidden gems, and general interests. He is a true ambassador for Scotland, having visited multiple times and is always working on planning that next trip....
We were thrilled when he expressed interest in creating his own personal tartan in the summer of 2017 and that he wanted to wait to have it woven in a Highland mill, the plans to which had just started to be plotted. So we did just that in October, 2018 when we set up our pop up mill in Evanton. Glen visited the mill during his vacation and collected his stunning tartan gift collection. The private collection of scarves he commissioned has since been shared generously with many of Glens friends and family. We think he may have worn his own personal scarf everyday whilst he was here!
Glen has become such a close personal friend to Clare and her family, having been a champion for everything they are doing at the mill and its long term vision. We are already looking forward to his next visit.
If Glen were a color he would almost certainly be cobalt blue - and we made sure to incorporate that into his personal tartan. Blue being significant in multiple areas of his life, from the hue of blue in the Scottish Saltire to celebrate his Scottish ancestry to the deep blue of the Texas State Flag. His tartan also incorporates a flashing strike of red, reflecting his burning passion for Scotland, mirrored also in white, again a nod to his Scottish ancestry, the purity of Scotland and is national flag.
