Name of Tartan:
Blue Ridge Highlands Heritage (Dist)
Designer / Source:
Hutcheson, Oxley, Raisbeck & Sampson
Available to STA members only
Based on the McCallum tartan, this has been designed by four members of the Scottish Foundaton of the Virginia Highlands (SFVH) - Jean Oxley (also the weaver), Elberta Raisbeck, Anne Sampson and the SFVH President Charlene Dixon Hutcheson. The tartan commemorates the early settlers of the Blue Ridge Mountains who were 75% Scots and Scots-Irish and the colours reflect those of the Mountains. There is a previous 'Blue Ridge' tartan (#3708) for the same area but its use was complicated by copyright problems which is why this new one has been designed which is wholly owned by the SFVH and which is free for use by by anyone - regardless of State - in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Woven sample.
