As part of the tartan registration process, we have to submit a woven sample. This requirement is intended to insure that every registered design will be woven, not remain just a design concept. We ordered our sample from Molly Manaugh. Actually, I ordered an extra for myself, just to have.
I got the tartan samples tonight. The quality is very high, and it is an amazing feeling to actually see and touch a woven sample of something that two months ago was just an idea. I see now that I should have ordered more samples, to pass out among the family.
