Join fashion designer and tailor Vixy Rae to go behind the scenes, and beyond the kilt, to stitch together never-before-heard stories and fascinating anecdotes on Scotland’s most famous fabric, tartan.
Celebrating the launch of her new book The Secret Life of Tartan: How a Cloth Shaped a Nation, Vixy explores how tartan transcends boundaries through colour and craft, texture and cloth, and sustainability from the handing down of kilts to the lost art of vegetable-dyeing yarn.
From the shortbread tin to the catwalk, regal palaces to highland bothies, The Secret Life of Tartan showcases tartan’s dramatic diversity and outstanding heritage.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Secret Life of Tartan with Vixy Rae are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
