Tartan: Traditional and Innovative Design


Tartan: Traditional and Innovative Design

Tartan is a textile that was developed in northwestern Scotland. Although their ubiquitous designs are widely known not only in fashion but also in daily goods and interior design, tartan itself is not so well-known. In this exhibition, through approximately 100 pieces of different tartan fabrics, which hitherto have not been seen very much in Japan, and artworks and other materials related to tartan such as works by John Kay (1742-1826), a caricaturist who was active in Edinburgh in the first half of the nineteenth century, the historical, social, and cultural background will be introduced in an attempt to explore the significance and charm of tartan from various viewpoints.
