    First time I've seen a woven example of American National. It does look nice. George W. didn't seem blown away by it though!

    Ever so often we have orders for Kilts in the American National Tartan, I'll try to get some more pictures of the material/finished Kilt if I can.

    I'm guessing George had quite a lot on his plate at the time!

    Sooooo okaaaaay, the thoughts arise, how many members, particularly from the USA, have anything made from American National tartan? What about the kiltmakers over there, do you use much American National tartan? Is it available to be used by other kiltmakers? Has anyone seen it out in the wild? Anywhere?

    Just wondering.
