MacCallum Modern


D. W. Stewart wrote, "It is believed that the family (MacCallum), having lost trace of the old sett 50 or 60 years ago (i.e. 1832 - 1843), had the modern design prepared from the recollection of old people in Argyllshire; but the recovery of the original design shows that considerable deviation had been made." 'Old and Rare Scottish Tartans' recorded just 45 tartans, specially woven in silk, of particular interest or antiquity. Copies of the book are now valuable collectors items.
