OKANAGAN

DESCRIPTION

This asymmetric tartan was developed by Daphne Malins, a founding member of the Desert Sage Weavers and Spinners Guild of the South Okanagan. It was registered in 1978 with CIPO, and samples are lodged with the museums of Penticton and Oliver. This tartan has not been registered with the Scottish Tartans Authority. The information is derived from the Guild of Canadian Weaver’s Exchange in 2006 and CIPO. Originally the colours were achieved by hand-dyeing.

The colours represent the colours of the Okanagan valley.

    Light olive for sage brush;
    White, yellow and pink for snow, sunshine and blossoms;
    Khaki and green for tree trunks and orchard grass;
    and the two blues represent the haze over the valley and the colours of the many lakes.
