The Williams Arbutus tartan is a family tartan made for the descendants of Frank and Sheila Williams (Parksville) to celebrate their Scottish heritage in 1997 and is for the personal use of the designers and their descendants.

The green and black honours their Scott Clan lineage.
The azure blue honours their Thomson Clan lineage.
The brown, red and green signifies the arbutus tree on Vancouver Island.
The blue and white lines, straddling the azure blue, represent Frank and Sheila's sons and daughters.

(Instructions to weaver: The tartan is to be woven with the threads in the reverse order as listed in the registry. Specifically, the selvedge edge is to be 20 green threads, to be followed by the 26 black threads, then the 20 green threads, etc., and pivot on the 2 azure blue threads. This is shown in the image above.)


** If you intend to weave or otherwise use any of these patterns, please be aware that you may need the written permission of the designer or producer. This information can be found in the Scottish Register of Tartans.
