Different weaves and dyes were traditionally worn by people in different areas of Scotland according to local taste, as well as the availability of natural materials required to make coloured fabrics. In the mid-nineteenth century, tartans came to be more associated with different families and clans. Combined with new weaving and dying technologies, this helped to create the huge array of tartans available in Scotland today.
