||As the name implies these are used in
connection with death, and are usually a
design using a combination of black and
white. As usually found, a few existing
tartans are already suited to funerals
but where specially created the rules
appear to be to replace over checks with
white whilst maintaining a black ground.
An example is Stewart Mourning, a late design based upon Royal Stewart but
having a black ground and white over check. This design is found only in
a very rare collection, Clan Originaux.
This is perhaps the most unnecessary type of tartan ever conceived.
