Tartan Cloak

Tartan Cloak, Scotland

This is a hard tartan cloak (c1800-1840) in Wilson's of Bannockburn cloth. Known as the Chisholm Cloak, it was originally in the Carmichael Collection and was subseqently acquired by the West Highland Museum in Scotland.
Alexander Carmichael was a famous Scottish Antiquarian who did a lot of work in the Outer Hebrides. The clans were in their infancy in the early 1800's so this might have belonged to someone who liked it rather than it was a Chisholm - whoever it was had some money as this was not a poor person's outfit.
