About the James Madison University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year JMU was founded - 1908 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 38.435° N, 78.869° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using JMU's official primary colors - Purple and Gold.
