William Morris Trellis Heavy Weight Cotton Floral Fabric By the Half Metre
Our Trellis design is a licensed William Morris design that was first produced in 1864. Trellis was inspired by the rose garden of Morris' home Red House in Bexleyheath. Trellis was the first wallpaper design Morris produced but was only printed in the early 1870s when his company Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. had enough money to finance the design. Since it's a detailed and complex design and one full of colour at a time printing required block printing, it was necessary for him to have formed the Firm before he could print Trellis. The birds within Trellis were designed by Morris' good friend and colleague, Philip Webb.
The pattern repeat is 20.5cm. The cotton fabric is 152 cm wide including a 2.5cm each side salve edge.
The cotton is printed in the United Kingdom.
Our Trellis Heavy Weight Cotton fabric is sold by the half metre, so if you purchase more than half a metre, the fabric will be sent as one continuous piece.
As with all natural fibres, cotton will contract so slight shrinkage should be allowed for.
The fabric is machine washable at 30 degrees.
