Scottish Tartans World Register: Erskine 
Erskine Clan Tartan  WR891



The Erskine clan or family originated in Renfrewshire. The first published version of the tartan appeared in the Vestiarium Scoticum, a romantic history of Scottish dress produced in 1842 by the Sobieski brothers. Cunningham tartan, published in the same work, differs only in the addition of a white stripe between the narrow green lines. Cunningham was one of the names adopted by the MacGregors, and this provides a tenuous connection which might explain the origin of the design.
The source of tartan 891 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
