CRPS Awareness Tartan
Hello all, I was diagnosed with RSD/CRPS over 17 years ago. It has taken a lot from me and my life is a lot different than I thought it would as 21 year old kid. Back then, most doctors didn't even know what it was. I am so happy to see awareness being raised for this terrible disorder we all deal with. I am daily kilt wearer and just recently thought, why shouldn't there be a CRPS Awareness Tartan?
In case you should be wondering what on earth tartan is, it is what has commonly become known in North America as plaid. In Victorian times a resurgence in interest in all things Scottish led to the creation of what are now called "clan tartans". There are quite a few of these tartan patterns that have been created for causes. It may even be possible to raise money through the sale of items such as scarves, shawls, neck- and bow-ties, wallets, handbags, even kilts. So, firstly, might there be any interest here? And if so, what colors would best represent CRPS Awareness? There is a relatively new tradition of certain colors having specific meaning in the design of a tartan, so that is something to think about. I happen to be wearing a kilt in Ireland's National tartan as I write this, and it features paired orange stripes, so that theme of orange can be put into the design.
something orange/red to represent our for that we feel and the fire we have to fight for a cure a life a pain free moment
I was born and raised in Illinois but I am Scottish on my father's side and I think a CRPS tartan is a wonderful idea! I agree that orange and red would be the best pattern to use.
This is a wonderful idea.
