  • Notes: This black and orange (the company colours) variation of the Johnston tartan used commercially ca. 1945 to 1965 by the Atlas Textile Co. of North Wales, Pennsylvania. B This was Bill Johnston's family company - BJ was a great tartan supporter, researcher and benefactor who was President of TECA Prior to World War II Bill travelled widely for the family firm, even to Japan. As a Quaker he would not serve in the military but was also exempt because of his essential military supply service. The Atlas Textile Company made parachuite webbing during the war and they also made the wick for every single Zippo lighter - a famous lighter used during World War II because the hinged lid shielded the flame from the wind. Info from Dr Phil DSmith Feb. 2010.
