Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartans originated in woven wool, but now they are made in many other materials to give you so many choices as to the types of clothes you can make with the classic tartan design. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland and Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. At Minerva Crafts our polyester and viscose tartan fabric range is one of our most popular ranges; it is suitable for making trousers, skirts, dresses, jackets and more. We also carry an ever changing selection of fashion tartan prints.
