Production rights in your tartan designs

You may use our online Tartan Designer for any reasonable purpose, free-of-charge and without restriction. We impose no conditions on how you use any original tartan designs you create. This applies to all designs in our system, including retrospectively.

Custom woven lengths are inherently variable. We charge for the fabric produced, which may be +/- 15% the length ordered. Where exact length is a concern, please order +15% and also inform us of your actual need when ordering.

We will be delighted to supply your designs as woven fabric or ready-made products, and our pricing is highly competitive. But we do not require this. You may commission any weaver to produce your tartan for you as woven fabric. It is only by doing so that you establish copyright or other intellectual property interest in your design. See our notes on your rights. We recommend that for any design in which you have such an interest, you should not publish your designs openly in our Gallery until you have done so.

If you wish a tartan you have designed in our system and then had woven elsewhere to be exclusively produced by another weaver, you should notify us in writing, including a full reference to your design in our system including its name and design number. We will then identify it online as Restricted, and will not weave it ourselves. In the absence of such notification, we assume you are happy for us to weave any design in our system, whether it is known to have been woven or not. Note that whenever we weave a tartan you design, you earn a royalty on the weaving charge, which will be credited to your Scotweb member’s account in the form of Scotweb Points.

We also request that if you go on to formally record with the Scottish Register of Tartans a design created in our online Tartan Designer, please include in the recording notes that it was designed with the help of the “Scotweb Online Tartan Designer“.
