We loved our Merida Inspired leggings so much we decided to create them again with a custom Tartan option! Inspired by Scotland, we used one of its most famous symbols – the Rampant Lion. The symbol of a lion has been used as a heraldic device for many centuries by Scottish Kings. William the Lion, reigned from 1165 to 1214 and, adopted a heraldic device showing a rampant lion, the king of beasts, rearing up with three paws stretched out. Legend has it that the inspiration came from King William's own lion that he supposedly kept in Edinburgh castle.
