Historical Note...
Before the18th century there was no significance to
the colors or designs of tartan fabric in Scotland and Ireland. The old Brehon laws of Ireland established the number of colors that could be worn in a tartan depending on the class of the wearer; the lowest classes wore designs of only two colors, while the King and highest bards could wear as many as nine. By the Middle ages even this tradition was ignored and all classes wore any designs they fancied and could afford. The Celts fastened their kilts and shawls on
their shoulders with the largest pennanular brooches they could afford. The brooches were made of iron, silver, copper, or gold.
