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. First produced at Merton Abbey, it was originally printed using the Indigo Dye technique. Philip Webb drew the birds and rabbits within the design.
Just like all our designs, Brother Rabbit 100% cotton is printed in the United Kingdom.
As with all natural fibres, cotton will contract so slight shrinkage should be allowed for.
The fabric is machine washable at 30 degrees.
The cotton fabric is 152 cm wide including a 2.5cm each side salve edge. The pattern repeat is 18cm. If you purchase more than half a metre the fabric within the same order, it will be sent as one continuous piece.
