John Muir Way Tartan Wool Tie. This 100 % wool tartan is exclusively designed by Gordon Nicolson and expertly woven in Selkirk, by Lochcarron of Scotland.
John Muir was a man of many talents; farmer, naturalist, botanist, inventor, explorer, mountaineer, writer - but is best known as a pioneer of nature conservation.
Muir was born in the coastal town of Dunbar, East Lothian on 21st April 1838. During his childhood in Scotland, he developed a deep love of the natural world, which grew into a lifelong cause, earning worldwide recognition.
April 2014 marked the centenary of Muirs death and the opening of the 215km celebratory John Muir Way. The trail stretches from his East Coast birthplace, through coastal, country and urban central Scotland, to Helensburgh on the West coast- the Muir familys departure point on their emigration to North America.
Gordon Nicolsons tartan design to honour Muir was inspired by " the Father of the National parks" legacy, and by the stunning coastline, countryside & Lammermuir hills which surround Dunbar, where Gordon lives with his family.
The colours woven represent;
Green & Brown - earthy nature
Blue - the sea & sky
Red - from the Dunbar tartan
The John Muir Way Tartan is approved by Scottish Natural Heritage, and is Registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans.
Length approx. 145cm, width approx 9cm
