Time for a Tartan Update

It's a busy time for Sherlock Holmes Tartan. We caught up with designer Tania Henzell to see just how fast that tartan is flying off the shelves under the licence of the Conan Doyle Estate. 

We're thrilled to see so many new products and so much attention for the tartan - especially as the temperature starts to drop - the perfect time to be reaching for something beautiful, Scottish and artisanal. 

Tania is designer and producer of Sherlock Holmes Tartan. Tania is the step-great-great-granddaughter of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle hence the name of this unique tartan. 

Tania on new products

As demand increases - we've been working hard to get our new items in our shop in time for Christmas. Some of my favourite items are our soft and cosy lambswool scarves, ever practical hip flasks, beautiful tartan rose brooches and our best selling kilts!  

On those kilts...Stand to attention! 

I'm really proud that the Sherlock Holmes Kilt will be worn by Louise Marshall a true Scottish piper for the Children's Parliament March down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh on Wednesday 6th November! Louise is a well known piper nationally and internationally, piping with her father's bagpipes - you can also sometimes catch her piping in the cruise liners as they dock into Leith. 

On the launch of Bonnie MacBird's new book

I have just been to London for the launch of Bonnie MacBird's third Sherlock Adventure book 'Devil's Due' which I am halfway through and it is a great read!  

On Global Tartan Travels

I was in New York City in January for the Baker Street Irregulars celebration of Sherlock Holmes' birthday! I'm really looking to getting back to New York for the celebrations in January 2020 - a great chance to get addicted to Sherlock Holmes Tartan! I was also at the Sherlock Holmes Exhibition earlier this year in New Jersey where I was interviewed for the American press. 

Watch Out for...

Sherlock Holmes Tartan is in Scottish Field magazine for the November/December Christmas issue - don't miss it!
