To order cloth or garments in Ewing tartan, please go to the Tartan Garments page.

The design for this tartan has been guided by our history, to create a tartan that is unique and distinctive and which reflects Ewing tradition. A plaid of sax ellis of reid & blak cullerit claith - 'six ells (or yards) of red & black coloured cloth' - was among the prized possessions of one John Ewing in Heiddykis of Kirkmichael, Dumbarton, who died in 1609. This rare description of a seventeenth-century tartan was the starting point for the current design. The evenly-balanced squares, and the double-stripe through the middle of the red squares are typical features of tartans for clans and districts closely associated with Ewing history.

Over the years, many Ewings have acquired kilts reflecting recent confusions with either MacEwens or MacLachlans. Kilts don't come cheap, so if you already own a kilt that's not in our own clan tartan, there's no reason why you shouldn't continue to wear it with pride as a member of Clan Ewing. But neither of these other tartans represents our clan, so we would be delighted if you want to swap to the new Clan Ewing tartan - here. And if you're ordering a new kilt, remember there is only one tartan that truly represents our Ewing heritage. Other clan tartans represent other clans.
