The Ailsa Tartan Tote is made in MacQueen Modern tartan. The main colour in the tartan is a cheerful bright red with the pattern being made up of black and gold. An extremely attractive tartan tote bag that will match many an outfit and give that outfit a little bit of zing. The Ailsa MacQueen Red Modern Tartan Tote in MacQueen Modern is a tartan tote bag that can be worn both in the city and the country.
The inside of the MacQueen Red Modern Tartan Tote Bag is lined with thick proofed canvas which makes it both waterproof and also helps keep the shape of the bag. The bottom of the tote bag is solid and this helps maintain the bucket shape design and stops the bag flopping even when items are placed in it. The black handles are in saddle hide and compliment the black in the tartan. Inside the bag there is one open pocket and one zipped pocket for valuables. The bag is closed at the top with a strong popper for further security.
Of West Highland origin, the MacQueens appear to have associated themselves with the Clan Donald. During the 13th century they were in Argyllshire and later, in Skye and Lewis. A number of Hebridean MacQueens settled in Strathdearn and became septs of Clan Chattan. They possessed Corryburgh in the 16th century and appear to have been quite strong at this time. Corryburgh passed out of their possession in the 18th century. Donald MacQueen was Sheriff Substitute of Inverness in the 18th century. Robert McQueen, the well-known lawyer, who became Lord Braxfield, belonged to a Lanarkshire family of MacQueens.
