Scottish Tartans World Register: Isle of Skye 
Isle of Skye District Tartan  WR2155



The tartan was instigated and registered by Mrs Rosemary Nicolson Samios in 1992, an Australian of Skye descent, now living in Skye. It was selected through a worldwide competition won by Angus MacLeod from Lewis. Angus, a weaver by trade, produced the first commercial quantities in the traditional kilt weight in 1993 at Lochcarron Weavers in North Strome. The colours of the tartan depict those of the island, often called the 'Misty Isle'. (A patented design)
The source of tartan 2155 was: Dgn. Angus MacLeod, Lewis, 1992
