Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was of Irish descent and was born and brought up in Edinburgh, and went to university to study medicine. He then moved to Portsmouth where he became a doctor and soon after began his detective series with the first book 'Study in Scarlet', using his medical knowledge.
The Sherlock Holmes Tartan has muted green and blue base colours, an ice blue stripe edged with soft brown, and a bright yellow stripe edged with a darker green. The tartan is registered with the Scottish Registry of Tartans, has been well received and endorsed by the Conan Doyle Estate, and has gained interest from Sherlockians worldwide.
Tania Henzell is designer and producer of the Sherlock Holmes Tartan. Tania is the step-great-great-granddaughter of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who created the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, hence the name of this unique tartan.
