The Chisholm Colonial Tartan

The US Branch is proud to announce the official approval of the new Chisholm Colonial Tartan!

Kat Moore (Lenexa, Kansas, USA) designed the tartan, working with Duncan Chisholm in Inverness, who was instrumental in getting this over the approval hurdles (Thank you Duncan!). Chief Hamish reviewed and approved the tartan at the recent gathering in Banff.


From Kat:
I am pleased to announce the arrival and registration of Chisholm Colonial Tartan. The category of 'Clan Tartan' is what this new design is registered as. At our Clan Gathering in Canada this past August 2008, our Chief Hamish Chisholm of Chisholm viewed the new design and approved it officially! Duncan Chisholm of Inverness, Scotland has been extremely good about having the initial cloth woven, doing all the important paperwork and other labors as well, that were required to make this project a reality.

I wanted to create a tartan that honored all those Chisholms who left Scotland to start a new life in the various 'Colonies' around the world. My original inspiration for this project came from the desire to honor my ancestor, James Chism of Virginia (1657- 1698). He was one of the many first generation American born Scots of our Clan. I am of the twelfth generation of this American-Scots line.

The colors that were chosen for the new tartan have specific significance. The following is the rationale for my color choices:

It is my fervent hope that Chisholms of all spellings and nationalities will find this tartan pleasing. I am proud to present Chisholm Colonial as my gift to Chisholms everywhere!
