A tartan is a fabric woven in crossing bands of color which represent traditions of and affiliation with specific groups. While the origins of the fabric are strongly rooted early Scottish history, the fabric itself is rapidly becoming a globally recognized symbol of tradition and affiliation. The official Bradley University Tartan was created by Carolyn Stewart ’17, a hospitality leadership major who submitted the design in a university-wide competition.
Bradley’s tartan is registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans in Edinburgh, Scotland, and a woven sample of the tartan is maintained in the National Archives of Scotland. Collegiate Tartan Apparel, a licensed university vendor, is the only vendor who may produce merchandise using the tartan, which is available in the bookstore for purchase.
