An elegant table setting repurposes plaid textiles–the “tablecloth” is actually a shawl; the napkins are sashes cut with pinking shears!

I search my Tartin: Buchanan
Asymmetric. In their 1850 book “The Clan and Family Tartans of Scotland” William and Andrew Smith of Mauchline wrote: The pattern here given seems to be universally considered the genuine Buchanan Tartan and we know that it is worn by Archibald Buchanan Esq, of Catrinebank, Ayrshire, whose father’s name is identified with one of the first cotton manufactories established in Scotland with Arkwright’s improvements.” The woven sample in the 1880 Clans Originaux agrees with this sett. Sample in STA’s Scarlett Collection.
