Beautiful Buchanan yellow, red, green and tartan handfasting ribbon.  Loosely braided with a tree of life charm attached, this handfasting cord measures 6 feet long and 1 1/4 inch in width.  The charm can be replaced, as can the colours of ribbon and tartan.  The charts are in the photos.


Buchanan Clan Motto: Clarior Hinc Honos, (Brighter hence the honour).


Buchanan Clan History:

"Buth Chanain." in Gaelic, means "House of the Canon." The origins of this clan are in Stirlingshire, and the Buchanan clan lands, were on the eastern shores and lower end of Loch Lomond.  A clan tradition has it that they were acquired in the 11th century through marriage by one Anselan O'Kyan, a son of the King of Ulster, who supported Malcolm II in repelling a Danish invasion. Two centuries later, the territory was granted to Dominus Absalon, said to have been a Holy man, by the earls of Lennox c.1225.  In the same century, a charter from Alexander II confirms the clan's ownership of the island of Clairinch, then known as "Slughorn" after the clan's war cry.


I make all of my handfasting cords myself in a smoke free home.  I do, however, have a dog and she is with me constantly.
