Clan Hope Tartans

This is the official tartan worn by Clan Hope of Craighall Society members. Unfortunately it is not a stock tartan woven at any of the Scottish Mills.

Clan Originaux’ is a swatch book found in Paris in c1880 used by J. Claude Fres Et Cie. who marketed tartan designs from Alsace, It contains many variations of Scottish Clan tartans. The only copy known to exist is in America and is now in the possession of Pendleton Mills in Portland, Oregon.

A Hope Vere appears in J Claude's 1880 pattern books 'Clans Originaux' and 'Scotch Tartans' and is shown at #320. The version shown here misses out a section (BKGB) and is the one used by Lochcarron for Hope-Vere. However, for Weir they use the version shown in Clans Originaux. This divergence happened many years ago and the reasons are unknown.
