Find out more about Derbyshire Tartan…
Derbyshire’s own tartan was designed in 2015 and is a registered tartan with The Scottish Register of Tartans in Edinburgh.
The design was inspired by Derbyshire’s rich natural resources and undeniable beauty along with the strong industrial heritage. The tartan is made up of six colours, Green for the surrounding countryside, Red for the industrial heritage, Black for the lead and coal mining of the area, Blue/Purple inspired by the famous Derbyshire Spar and the high peaks in summer, White for the limestone quarried in Derbyshire and Yellow for the Tudor rose emblem which has been part of the county badge since 1470.
Derbyshire Tartan is made into a variety of products including traditional kilts, scarves, cushions and ties.
Derbyshire Tartan is one of a selection of fabulous makers who will be showing their work as part of Let’s MAKE Christmas at the Museum and Art Gallery Shop from Saturday 17th October to Thursday 24th December 2020.
