This photo from the Bellingham Highland Games shows a few of the many tartan patterns. Fun fact: Although we now think of tartans as belonging to a specific clan, or family, historically tartan patterns were actually regional because the weavers in a given area would have the same dye sources to work with. It's only relatively recently that we assigned certain tartans to each clan in order to differentiate them.
