The Spirit of Yorkshire Tartan

Born in Yorkshire. Bred in Yorkshire. Live in Yorkshire... 

All invoke a real sense of pride in the place, the heritage, the culture, the history and the people. 

From the distinct dialects to the local food choices, folk from Yorkshire are proud to be from here.
And why not... Yorkshire is the largest county of them all by far, stretching from the North Sea coast deep into and over the Pennine Mountains, and from the River Tees to the Humber and further south inland. Encompassing both empty moorland and crowded conurbations, high fells and low plains. 

It's a county with a strong character and identity of its own, just like it's people.
We've got Yorkshire puddings and Yorkshire tea, we've got the single most successful county cricket team since county cricket began. We've got the oldest association football team in the world... And we've absolutely got the finest ales known to man.

And now we can wear our very own tartan "The Spirit of Yorkshire" - to be worn with pride by Yorkshire folk anywhere around the world.

What it represents

An exceptionally soft and smooth tartan - in our view the world's finest.
The Spirit of Yorkshire tartan has been created using only the best quality wool, woven using just three colours : White, Blue and Yellow.
The colours representing the blue of the sea off our beautiful coastline, the yellow for the warmth and generosity given freely by people from Yorkshire wherever they may live in the world and the white obviously to represent the White Rose of Yorkshire
- Our emblem, known across the globe

Our tartan is used and enjoyed all over the world, from catwalk to Kilt.
