Fabric (16oz) - Bards, Ovates & Druids Tartan
With the 3 golden strands of Awen, the 5 elements’ colours (Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Spirit) and the 3 Grades’ colours, this is the tartan for Bards, Ovates & Druids, and any Pagan of a good heart.
This tartan was born from an idea by Kate Collison (UK) and Billy Stewart (USA) in spring 2020. It was designed by Kate and discussed at length on various OBOD Facebook sites.
Philip Carr-Gomm was contacted, loved the idea and the design, and gave permission for the name Bards, Ovates and Druids in a letter that was included in the application to the Scottish Tartan Register.
Then lockdown happened, and we had to wait for nearly 2 years for the application to be processed, but finally we got the registration on 12th April 2022.
In order to get a ream of material made in a traditional Scottish Tartan Mill, it is necessary to take pre-orders. The material will be pure wool, and 70cm wide. It will be fairly thick material, known as 16oz, and is suitable for kilts, cloaks, scarves and upholstery, as well as making into bags, purses, trews, and all manner of craft ideas.
Please order below, and when the material is ready (hopefully by autumn/fall – it takes 12-16 weeks to make) it will be sent out to those who have pre-ordered first. For orders outside the UK, the postage is expensive, and sadly there is no way around this. Maybe get together with friends and order together, this way the postage costs work out cheaper per person.
Please specify number of metres in Quantity.
