Official Launch Of The Blairgowrie Berries and Cherries Tartan!
22nd August 2015
Congratulations to Local Master Weaver Ashleigh Slater on the launch of The Blairgowrie Berries and Cherries Tartan from all at Discover Blairgowrie.
The much-admired hand-woven tartan was on display at Ashleigh’s Warpweftweave Studio in Leslie Street during the 2014 Perthshire Open Studios and caught the eye of Melanie Thomson of local fruit growers Thomas Thomson (Blairgowrie) Ltd.
Melanie was excited to discover the inspiration behind it and decided to support Ashleigh in registering the new tartan. Together they’ve named it ‘Blairgowrie Berries and Cherries’ and hope it will become a useful design to promote the town. “Ashleigh’s choice of colours in the tartan was exactly right for the fruits that we grow – wonderful cherry as the background and blueberries to the fore with the traditional raspberries and strawberries running through – I placed an order for a scarf straight away!” said Melanie. “I’m hoping it can be used for a range of items such as handbags, table runners, kilts etc and am keen to hear from anyone who is interested in using it.”
