OF OUTLANDER TARTAN
The Outlander TV Series, based on the books by Diana Gabaldon, has swept the world. With the popularity of the show being cited as the reason for a huge surge in Scotland’s Tourism, it has also boosted the textiles industry.
Ingles Buchan are proud to be the official manufacturers of the tartan used not only in the TV Series itself, but also available for sale through AbbyShot, based in Newfoundland.
Bonnie Edgecombe Cook, president of AbbyShot, said:
“The Made in Scotland tag is so important to us as well as to the loyal fans of the show, and we couldn’t have asked for a better partnership than the one which we have with Ingles Buchan.”
Ingles Buchan was approached to supply tartan to Outlander because its textiles retain a traditional look. Producers of the hit show were keen to draw on the heritage and skilled workforce for which Scottish mills are renowned worldwide.
