Tartan Week 2009

As I sit here in my vintage tartan blazer, I am excited to spread the word about Tartan Day on April 6. In New York, this year’s Tartan Day Parade, complete with more than 1,675 participants and 570 drums and pipes, will be Saturday, April 4, with Tony Award winner and celebrated Scottish actor, Alan Cumming as the parade Grand Marshall. The event has grown a full Tartan Week, with a fashion show, the parade, and many other Scottish-themed events, all centered around Tartan.

At Janet Helm, we are definitely mad for plaid. We have been designing tartan and producing scarves for companies since 2004 when our first made-to-order design was created for Coca-Cola's chairman to give as gifts during the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.

Since then, we have taken a modern twist to traditional patterns with contemporary designs for companies including VersaCold, Colliers, City of Vancouver, Haywood Securities, and Concert Properties.

Tartan has been a huge hit, as there is wonderful symbolism behind the gift- family, unity, friendship, community- a great message our clients want to share with their employees and customers.

With the economy in turmoil, the message couldn't come at a better time, as companies are looking for creative and meaningful ways to recognize their employees and show appreciation to customers with a limited budget.

So it seems natural for us at Janet Helm to make it easier than ever to give with meaning. For a limited time, until Tartan Week April 6, you can have your own tartan for the special price listed below.

Imagine your own tartan, made-to-order, designed and produced as scarves, complete with your personal message on an enclosure card, gift boxed just for you.

Minimum order is only 100 scarves and your investment is only $95 CAD each.

See our website for more information.

Be a Part of it - Tartan!

I love it but wonder why April 6th and not Nov 30th. Perhaps its something to do with the November cold and the kilt wearer. Lovely stuff.
