This site was inspired by a love of tartan and particularly, by the many beautiful, whimsical, and inspiring designs of tartan designer Carol A.L. Martin, some of which are featured on this site, along with the work of other modern designers and historical tartans.
With gratitude for her generous permission to display these designs on this site.
Carol A. L. Martin began designing tartans in 2009 when new software made it possible to create original designs and register them online.
Carol lives with her husband and German Shepherd dog in the foothills of the Rocky
Mountains in Northern Alberta, Canada.
Following is just a small sampling of the designs of Carol A.L. Martin. Note that all the tartans on this site are displayed within the context of an artistic association with a day of the calendar year which is a special conceit of this entertainment website and not necessarily related to the designer's original intention or inspiration.
