Scottish Tartans World Register: MacKeane 
MacKeane MacIan Clan Tartan  WR1608



The design comes from the Vestiarium Scoticum (1842). The authors, the Sobieski Stuart brothers, enjoyed a popular following among the Scottish gentry in the early Victorian era, and in the spirit of the times, added mystery, romance and some spurious historical documentation to the subject of tartan. Of the better known tartans, the book offers some minor variation, but in other cases it provides the only recorded version of many tartans in use today.
The source of tartan 1608 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
