Commissioned by the Aberdeenshire Council, the new Aberdeenshire tartan was designed by Donna Wilson with the help of local schoolchildren of the county. The children were asked to present the colours they felt best represented their area of Aberdeenshire. With these suggestions, Donna has designed a brand new tartan that is completely unique to its namesake! As a Scottish designer who grew up in Aberdeen, Donna feels very honoured to have been asked to design this very special tartan.
