The Ailsa Tartan Tote is made in Robertson Red tartan. The main colour in the tartan is a cheerful warm red with the pattern being made up of pale green squares. An extremely attractive tartan tote bag that will match many an outfit and give that outfit a little bit of zing. The Ailsa Bucket Tote Tartan Robertson Red Ancient is a tartan tote bag that can be worn both in the city and the country. It is so colourful it would brighten up any dull day.
The inside of the Robertson Red Tartan Tote Bag is lined with thick green 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 green handles are in bridle hide and compliment the light green 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.
The Robertsons, who claim to be descendants of the Celtic Earls of Athol, are known as Clan Donnachaidh, Donnachaidh Reamar – stout Duncan – led the clan at Bannockburn in support of Robert the Bruce. In 1451 the Robertson lands were erected into the Barony of Struan. In the 16th century part of these lands were lost to the Earl of Atholl. The Robertsons supported the Jacobites and fought under Montrose and Viscount Dundee, and also in the 1715 and 1745 Risings. Alexander, 17th chief, fought in the cause of the Royal Stewarts in 1688, 1715 and 1745. There are many important branches of the clan. The surname comes from Robert “Riach”, who was chief in the 15th century.
