Maple Leaf tartan and bags
I was recently given the opportunity to make some bags in the lovely Maple Leaf tartan that has been the official national tartan of Canada since 2011.
This tartan was designed by David Weiser in 1964. The pattern incorporates the colours the maple leaf goes through as the seasons change: the green of the summer foliage, the gold in early autumn, the red after the first frost and the brown of the fallen leaf.

The fabric I made the bags in was woven by Lochcarron, the world's leading manufacturer of tartan. With a heritage dating back to 1892, this Scottish company produce and sell tartans and textiles that are designed, dyed, warped, mended and tailored by skilled craftsmen and women in Selkirk.
If you are looking for a highland dress, a kilted skirt, tartan fabric, a scarf or a blanket, you are sure to find at Lochcarron what is right for you.
