The family name comes from the Leslie lands of Aberdeenshire and was to become famous in Germany, Poland, France and Russia. An Hungarian noble named Bartholf (or Batholomew) settled in this area and in the 12th century one of his sons obtained a charter for the Barony of Lesly from William the Lion.
Clan Leslie has two tartans: the Hunting (or green) and Dress (Red). There are three shades of each – the bolder, darker colors are called ‘modern’, the lighter colours ‘vegetable dye’, and the muted, almost pastel colors are ‘ancient’.
All are correct but there are definitely only these two Leslie tartans. There are rare references to a ‘blue’ Leslie tartan but we do not acknowledge that this has anything to do with the Leslies. Technically a tartan is described by the thread count of the sett, or pattern.
The Leslie Plaid Tartan lets you show off your heritage by wearing your clan’s tartan, or it can simply be worn because you enjoy the unique colors it bears. Mostly red, this vibrant and bold kilt is sure to catch the eye of anyone you pass by. On top of the red color are black lines that run both horizontally and vertically throughout the kilt.
These black lines are outlined by white that helps to draw out the red color even more. Pleats on the sides of the Leslie Tartan add a bit of depth to the look. On either side are hooks for attaching your favorite sporran. Order these kilts to measure by hip size, waist size and more. Clan Leslie Tartan fabric is a woven cloth with colored threads, crossing at right angles. Tartan fabrics are usually made of wool.
