THE pattern was said to have lain dormant for 160 years until it was revived in the 1960s by John Cargiill of Dundee and woven by Ben Nevis Handlom Weavers of Dundee. Wilsons are known to have applied the names of town and cities to patterns where they sold well, or had been obtained from. No other reason can be found to link the pattern with the place but it is now accepted as the Glasgow district tartan.
