The backstory of our N16 collection were began from The Battle of Culloden in 1746. The war were began by the final confrontation of Jacobite rising, which againsted to the government army and fighted for independent. However the result of the battle were grievous and indignant, the Jacobite army were defeated by British government force.
Despite the collapse of the Jacobite campaign, many of their supporters were secretly showing their support toward Jacobite by their presence of tartan in portraiture. This symbol were employed almost exclusively male portraits. However this also became a trend in female supporters andregarded as a emblem of braveness in this conservative and dangerous time.
The fearless spirit of the Jacobite army and supporters, alongside the sorrowful and freedom desired background were the center stage of our N16 collection started.
