‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful’ – William Morris

15th October 2017

We’ve been huge fans of William Morris for as long as we can remember; not only his designs of which it’s pretty clear we’re fans of, but also of his poetry, literature and his general attitude towards life – achieving a remarkable amount in his life due to his numerous passions and immeasurable talent.

It’s for this reason that we’ve decided to launch one of our new ranges as an ode to the man himself – whilst his designs are recognisable, we’ve mixed perhaps one of his most widely loved design with both his signature and one of his famous quotes, recognised all over the world…

“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’ – William Morris

It’s one of the quotes we believe to summarise his beliefs the most – so passionate he was about creating beautiful spaces in his home that when he bought Red House, and was unable to find home furnishings he liked, he was inspired to make his own. This fuelled the formation of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. which in turn led to his own company, Morris & Co. for which he produced most of his famous designs and flourished into creating his own style and abilities within the printing world.

Which item is your favourite? They all contain the photo and quote and Morris’ Trellis design surrounding this. Our tote bag also has his signature and elects of the Trellis design on the other side which we absolutely love!

Introducing Daisy, our latest William Morris licensed design 🌿 Daisy was the second wallpaper William Morris designed, but the first to be produced in 1864, so it remains a special design to every Morris fan ✨ It must have been a favourite of Morris himself, as embroideries of Daisy were used to decorate at the stunning Red House, Morris's home in Bexleyheath. 
We hope you love Daisy as much as we do! Available now on our website, in a limited range of products, fabric is coming soon! ☺️

Showcasing our licensed William Morris Lily fabric, it’s so light and bright it’s making us excited for Spring! 🌿
Designed by William Morris in 1874, it incorporates the willow background with lilies and wild flowers ✨ The design must have been well loved by Morris himself- it was the wallpaper he used to decorate his bedroom at Kelmscott Manor, his home in Lechlade, Gloucestershire 🌿

The different weights of fabric 🧵 We have four weights of fabrics; cotton, heavyweight, drill and pvc, all work well for different projects. For a free sample, please feel free to message us and we’ll get them sent out to you 📮
✨ For our 100% cotton, it’s great for quilting, dress making and more, our lightest weight of cotton
✨ Our heavyweight cotton is perfect for curtains and light upholstery, a heavier fabric than our 100% cotton 
✨ Our drill cotton fabric is our heaviest weave fabric, suitable for light upholstery 
✨ Our PVC is our pvc/oilcloth coated cotton fabric, brilliant as a table covering, it’s sold by the half metre and as it won’t fray, is great to put straight on the table 🌿

The cotton, heavyweight and drill cotton are all 152cm wide and the pvc fabric is 140cm wide. All are sold by the half metre 📏
