    This beautiful tartan was instigated and registered by Mrs Rosemary Nicolson Samios in 1992, an Australian of Skye descent, now living in Skye. It was selected through a worldwide competition won by Angus MacLeod from Lewis. Angus, a weaver to trade, produced the first commercial quantities in traditional kilt weight in 1993 at Lochcarron Weavers in North Strome, within view of the Cuillin Mountains. The colours of the tartan depict those of the island, often called the "Misty Isle". Mrs Samios controls the rights to the production of this "Isle of Skye" district tartan through registration with the Patents Office and Lochcarron of Scotland has been appointed as the supplier of fabrics and woven accessories in this tartan.
