|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.
