About the STA

About the STA

The Scottish Tartans Authority was formed in 1996 as a Scottish registered company with charitable status.

We're dedicated to preserving, promoting and advancing Scottish Tartans - their origins, history, manufacture, use and development.

Together with the Scottish Register of Tartans we cover every aspect of tartan history, design and development.

We rely on individual and business members and supporters to meet our objectives. 

Our key objective for the future is the establishment of an international visitor centre and resource for research, learning and exhibitions. The STA is leading the campaign for a Scottish Tartan Centre and is currently involved in a feasibility study with the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise to reach this goal.

Joining us gives you many benefits and - most importantly - your membership directly contributes to ensuring the preservation, protection and promotion of this national icon for future generations.
