Limited Edition Wool Blanket by Johnstons of Elgin, in QEST Tartan by Kinloch Anderson

£245.00

Two of Scotland’s oldest family businesses, Johnstons of Elgin and Kinloch Anderson, have collaborated to produce this limited edition QEST tartan blanket.

Manufactured by Johnstons of Elgin in 100% wool, the blanket features an enlarged scale of the new QEST tartan, designed by Kinloch Anderson in celebration of the 30th anniversary of QEST and the 180th anniversary of the Royal Warrant Holders Association. The setting, or pattern, reflects the Royal Warrant Holders Association Tartan, which is based on the Stewart Tartan – widely worn by the Royal Family and part of their heritage.

Proceeds from the sale of this new tartan will be donated to QEST.
