According to Wikipedia, tartan is a pattern consisting of crisscrossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors. Tartans are particularly associated with Scotland since Scottish kilts almost always use them as patterns.

Both of us, PeHaa and Joe Vains, work a lot with patterns in the context of graphic and web design. The idea of creating Tartanify.com was born during our summer holidays in Scotland. We were impressed by the number and the variety of tartans. They are counted in thousands! And each one seems more beautiful than the other.

Technical details

Tartanify.com is a static site, built with gatsby.js. It uses a CSV file for the content. The CSV file contains the name of each pattern, its color palette, its "threadcount" and the link to its page in the official register. This data comes from the Scottish Register of Tartans.
