This Heather Tartan mini real cloth tartan notebook comes with a small retractable pen, and is part of the Scottish Traditions series. Famed for its hardiness and beauty on Scottish hills in autumn, heather is one of Scotland’s best-known native plants. The Heather tartan is one of Kinloch Anderson's house tartans ranges.
Early weavers relied upon local plants and natural products for their dyes so the locality of the weaver had a bearing on the colours of the local tartan.
The genuine tartan cloth used for this notebook is supplied by and produced with the authority of Kinloch Anderson Scotland. Commonplace notebooks date back to the Scottish Enlightenment. Many thinkers and writers used a Commonplace notebook for writing down ideas and knowledge. Adam Smith, Robert Burns, David Hume, and later, writers such as Sir Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Virginia Woolf used commonplace notebooks.
