Campbell of Argyll (Clan)
  • Notes: Asymmetric. This is the Campbell of Argyll as produced by modern weavers (2008). Tartan Society notes state: "This sett appears in the Cockburn Collection, (1815). Logan (1831). Vestiarium Scoticum (1842). Smibert (1850). Smith (1850). Grant (1886). The Setts No: 19 (1950). W & A K Johnston (1906). Like many of the earliest clan setts, the Campbell of Argyll, owes its origin to the post rebellion output of Wilson's of Bannockburn, whose monopoly on military supply dictated design." However . . . it's certainly NOT the sett that appears in Smiths (that's at #0008) so the other claims in that note need checking.) The Chief of Clan Campbell has this to say regarding this tartan: "Let me get rid, once and for all, of the thought that there is a 'Campbell of Argyll' [tartan]. While it is true that the Sixth Duke [of Argyll] introduced a white line to his plain Campbell tartan to differentiate himself from the rest of the Campbells, (he being the chief and entitled to do so), he was the only member of the family so to do and the rest of the family thought he was rather pompous to do it. " Despite this, the tartan is still produced and sold by weavers so it would appear that 'Campbell of Argyll' is here to stay.
