    He meant peat bog - an old mate of mine is from Mayo, his wife is from Dublin, when he went a little of tangent she would pull him up by jokingly say he was "such a bogger".

    As I don't have an artistic mind I had no conception or expectation of how the newly discovered tartan might have turned out when re-produced, but somehow I am rather disappointed with the result.

    Jock, I found the colors to be rather like camoflage, for that Glen Affric area ... I does make sense as the dyes were originally made from local plants and such.
    I prefer the Angels Share tartan over this one.

    It is good they did go through the effort to bring back an Historic tartan though

    Scotand is a small county and there are actually very few traditional dyes plants that are location specific or restricted. The idea that tartan colours were regionally determined is not borne out by evidence.

    Even by the time that Glen Affric was woven there had been the widespread use of some imported dyes, and by the 18th century their use was even greater, especially for reds and blue.

    What kind of garment might the Glen Affric tartan have been a part of? Obviously it's impossible to know for sure, but what was worn in tartan in those days? Wasn't it too early for a great kilt?

    A man should look as if he has bought his clothes (kilt) with intelligence, put them (it) on with care, and then forgotten all about them (it). Paraphrased from Hardy Amies

    Depending on when in the 16th century, it was not too early for the Belted Plaid. That said, the cloth s too fine to have been practical for that use. Nor do we know if it belonged to a man or woman but it's likely to have been a lighter outer garment, possibly a status piece of some sort.
