Scottish Tartans World Register: Christie 
Christie Family Tartan  WR1355



Two woven samples in the Society's collection, were presented by Messrs Stewart Christie of Edinburgh. Very little else is known about the origin of the design. The alternative sample replaces blue with azure, but is otherwise identical. The name Christie in Scotland is thought to derive from the Norse word 'Trusty' meaning swordsman. (c.f. thrust). Christies are traditionally associated with the Clan Farquharson.
The source of tartan 1355 was: Messrs James Johnston
