This detail shows a section of a woman's woollen cloth cloak woven in the Buchanan tartan. Dating from around 1800-10, the cloak was worn by the donor's great-grandmother.

Woman's cloak with a cape, armholes, belt and standing collar, made of hard woollen cloth, woven with the Buchanan tartan: Scottish, about 1800 - 1820

Tartan became one of the most successful products of the Scottish textile industry. The 1822 visit of George IV to Edinburgh boosted its popularity as did Queen Victoria's love of the Highlands.
