Scotch plaid, or as it is called, “tartan” is a plaid wool fabric, the historical homeland of which is Scotland. At the same time the plaid itself may have different patterns, which in ancient times were of great significance: the colors of the Scottish tartan kilt for men could tell about his belonging to a particular clan, family, organization, and so on.
