Hororata Tartan


The Hororata Tartan© was designed and gifted to the people of Hororata. This Tartan is designed with six colours, each colour chosen to symbolise what it means to be from the Hororata region.

  • RED represents our native Rata tree’s flower of which HoroRATA was named.
  • WHITE represents the snow that blankets our mountains each winter.
  • BLUE represents the rivers and waterways that bring life and enjoyment.
  • GREEN represents the grass and pounamu.
  • Our region has three primary schools, and their colours are all represented: BLACK and YELLOW for Hororata School, GREEN and WHITE for Windwhistle School and BLUE and BLACK for Glentunnel School.

The Hororata Tartan© is available in a range of products including Cheesecutter hats, Newsboy hats, ties, scarves and Kilts. New for 2016 Hororata Tartan cushions – 100% wool, tailored locally.
