Compare Designs

This facility allows you to create an image of your proposed design and to compare it against the tartans already recorded on the Register.

Please note the required format for both pallet and threadcount. For further information on the format of a threadcount and colour codes please refer to the Threadcount Guidance.

Once you have entered the required details, click on the 'Generate Tartan' button to create the image.

You may then choose to click the 'Find similar tartans' button to compare your design against recorded tartans. The system will search the contents of the Register and draw out any tartans which share the general colour scheme of your proposed design.
