It's later than Renaissance obviously, but figured it might be of interest

It's beautiful! I like that it's quite simple.
And I just love this little sentimental story:

The true story of Isabella MacTavish's wedding dress may be lost, but how easy it is to image a grandmother reverently bringing out this MacTavish clan tartan that she'd hidden nearly forty years earlier, and giving it to the bride for her wedding dress – a dress that would have symbolized love, and so much more.

That's gorgeous! I'd love to have something similar in our Maxwell tartan for the highland festivals we attend.
