Abstract

When mention is made of the word "plaid" we immediately think of the Scottish tartans and plaids, which at one time were exclusively clan tartans to be worn by a particular group. These tartans, in ancient times, were worn as kilts or trews by the menfolk while the women used them to cover their heads. This was the origin of the famous Paisley shawls.
