Scottish Tartans World Register: Robertson 
Robertson Clan Tartan  WR1391



The oldest records show Robertson tartan with a white line. But the modern weavers sett, without the white, can be traced to Logan's book 'The Scottish Gael' published in 1831. D.C.Stewart noted a subtle difference in Logan's count which is reproduced here. That is the use of contrasting narrow stripes next to the broader stripe. Other versions have only blue, narrow stripes. Stewart reckoned that it added 'balance in the design'. Mid toned blues and greens are used in this illustration.
The source of tartan 1391 was: Logan
