A handbound album made in your family tartan. Choose your tartan, binding, and from 3 different sizes. Personalise it with a place, name or date.


Find your tartan on the ScotlandShop site and simply type your choice in the box. (See our Tartan page for more information on ordering your family tartan.)


Personalisation will be embossed in gold foil on black and mid-tan leather and black foil if light-tan leather is chosen. Further leather colours and silver foil are available - please enquire. We can send pictures of different leather colours with your tartan when it arrives to help you decide.


It usually takes 1-2 weeks for your tartan to arrive at our studio and another 1-2 weeks to bind, press and send your handcrafted album to you. (2-4 weeks total). If your tartan is out of stock we'll let you know and give you the opportunity to choose another tartan if the wait is going to be too long for you.
