Do you need a woven sample of the tartan you have just designed, or a custom woven tartan accessory?

Then you need A Tartan Weaver.  That’s me, Molly Manaugh.  I have been a weaver for 40 years, making and selling hand woven Scottish tartans since 1995, first in my home in Fairbanks, Alaska, and now in my new home in Eureka, California.

I learned the craft of weaving in 1983 in my home state of California.  My first project was to weave my own clan tartan:  MacNaughton.  I was hooked; it was a natural and comfortable fit. Since then, I have woven over 410 different tartan patterns.  Tartans are a beautiful blending of a few basic colors into many different patterns.  

Tartans, or plaids, are the traditional Scottish national dress and can be worn or used by anyone who likes the plaid design.  I work with wool, wool/silk blends, cotton, cotton/linen blends, and cellulose fibers (bamboo, soy silk, and Tencel).  I have access to many patterns and will weave any unrestricted tartan.  I do not weave yardage orders.  I prefer to create those items to accessorize the home and wardrobe.  Please check out my tartan products for photos and details.  If you are interested in an item not on that page, please let me know.  I will try to accommodate your needs. To help you find your pattern, or one you like, please Find Your Tartan >

If you have designed your own tartan and need a sample woven up, I can do that as well.  You will find the different sizes and fibers I use for samples on the products page.

I am an organized person, so tartans with their precise patterns appeal to me. Weaving tartans connects me to my heritage and gives me an outlet to work in my favorite medium – fiber.
