Your bespoke tartan journey...


Through a process of consultation and basic sampling we agree the design of your cloth, its colourways, yarn count and density. At this stage we agree the design based on a selection of a minimum of six-sample CAD choices, produced for your approval.

When your final choice has been selected, the design is then officially recognised as an authentic tartan design and recorded in The Scottish Register of Tartans.  Upon acceptance a formal certificate of approval and registration is issued by the National Records of Scotland. This keepsake is beautifully framed and presented to you.

Your tartan product collection is tailored to your wants, needs and desires. The Prickly Thistle luxury service is defined by giving you choice. This can range from fine cashmere interiors, to statement fashion pieces for personal or corporate wear, or bespoke furniture hewn from reclaimed Highland timber finished with your tartan cloth in a hardy tartan tweed.  

We guide you through this process to ensure that your collection is a unique as you and your tartan design.
