“We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
Your January sock, The Tartan, is inspired by the regal pattern worn by traveling Scottish clans. Historically, the pattern was displayed on heavy cloaks to protect from harsh winters. Because weavers had different dyes available to them regionally, these patterns became unique identifiers of Scottish clans. While the Sock Club family may not be a regional one, we are proud that our members receive the same pattern every month and can share in each other’s tradition. We hope The Tartan keeps you warm as you embark on your 2019 adventures!
