This Licensed William Morris Design was first produced in May 1882. It is also known sometimes as Brer Rabbit and was inspired and named after a character in Uncle Remus, His song and Sayings by J.C.Harris (1881) which William Morris would read to his daughters Jenny and May. The design was produced at Merton Abbey using the Indigo discharge method of printing.
The Birds and rabbits within the design were drawn Morris' good friend and colleague by Philip Webb.
The 100% cotton cloth has been coated in a clear gloss polish wipe clean pvc coating which is soft and drapes well. Just like all our fabric, our William Morris Brother Rabbit pvc is printed and pvc coated in the United Kingdom.
The pvc fabric is 140 cm wide. The pattern repeat is 18cm. For the fabric length, it's sold by the half metre, so you can choose your length using the drop down above. If you order more than 0.5m in the same order, it will be sent as a continuous length.
Our cotton tablecloths are machine washable at 30 degrees. As with all printed fabrics, please wash face to face (please fold the tablecloth pattern to pattern.) Our pvc tablecloths are wipe clean, please wipe with warm soapy water.
