Pure Wool Scarf in The Original Braveheart Tartan
size 160 x 30cm

In 1994 Gordon Covell, who owns the Islay Woollen Mill on the island of Islay, was asked to weave a tartan for a new film starring Mel Gibson about the life and death of Scotland's greatest hero William Wallace.

That film was called "Braveheart".

The colours available in Wallace and Bruce's time were extracted from the natural products available. Berries, Lichen, gorse and peat were all used to die the wool before weaving the tartan. These garments have been woven in the traditional manner in the oldest woollen mill in Scotland on the island of Islay.
