  • Notes: Asymmetric. An asymmetric tartan designed by John P. Houston of Batesville, Arkansas and W. James Houston of New Zealand. They wished to register the tartan but TECA of the USA was unsure as to its qualification as a tartan and suggested that the two Houston armigers in Scotland should have the prerogative of naming a Houston tartan, and that TECA would designate this tartan a "John Houston". John Houston withdrew his application but is said to have submitted a slightly redesigned swatch in 1997 and was referred to the STA. The STA has no record of recording a tartan of that name. Sample in STA's Johnston Collection. The threadcount shown here is accurate having been taken from the woven sample by BW in Feb 2006.
