New Sherlock Holmes Tartan Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Relative
A brand new tartan has been created by the great-great step-granddaughter of the famous author who brought Sherlock Holmes to life. Tania Henzell, Conan Doyle's relative, created the tartan, which was recently approved by the Scottish Register of Tartans, to commemorate the fictional life of Sherlock Holmes.
The tartan is predominately green and blue, which is meant to reflect Conan Doyle's Scotish and Irish Heritage. It also contains highlights of light blue, representing the Reichenbach Falls, and yellow, representing the "deductive clarity" of Holmes.
Fans of Sherlock Holmes will recall that the Reinbach Falls are the location where Sherlock fights to the death against his archnemesis, Professor Moriarity in the Final Problem.
