As we approach America's 250th Anniversary, we here at USA Kilts began reflecting on what makes America good. Since our founding in 1776, the United States of America has held out a promise to the world. The idea that no matter who you are, this is a place dedicated to personal freedom... allowing you to chart your own course and work towards a better life. A place where your talents and determination will count for something. Our goal was to create a tartan inspired by the Founding Fathers vision of America – that we are all created equal with the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
USA Kilts exclusive American Dream tartan blends the classic red, white and blue in a perfect balance of visual elements:
- 76 blue threads for the year 1776
- 13 red stripes at the red pivot to represent the thirteen original colonies
- A gold stripe in the center of the blue field as a nod to the ‘golden door’ watched over by Lady Liberty
- We worked in 3 shades of red and 3 shades of blue to represent the diverse backgrounds and experiences of all Americans – those who suffered hardships of every kind but never gave up their personal vision of the American Dream.
With the Semiquincentennial anniversary of our nation approaching, we invite all proud Americans, of every ethnicity, race, & religion, to celebrate what is truly good about our nation - the promise of the American Dream.
