About the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year MIT was founded - 1861 - with the geographic coordinates of its Cambridge campus - 42.3606° N, 71.0922° W.

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using MIT's official colors - MIT Red and Silver Gray.
