Black and white is a popular tartan to wear for weddings and celebrations. And we find these colours in the highlands and islands, black grouse, capercaillie, puffins, and the Black Isle are part of Scotland’s natural landscape.
Early weavers used local plants and natural products for their dyes so the locality of the weaver affected 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.
