WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TARTAN AND A PLAID?
The word 'tartan' is normally associated with Scotland, for example a Scottish kilt is known to have a tartan pattern. The tartan pattern is made up of a pattern of interlocking stripes and has long been associated with different Scottish families adopting a unique tartan. In America, the iconic tartan pattern is referred to as 'plaid', whereas in Scotland plaid is a piece of tartan designed cloth which is slung over the shoulder as an accessory.
