Strawberry Thief is another of our licensed William Morris design that was first produced in 1883. It marked a triumph for Morris as it was produced as he perfected the indigo-discharge technique of printing at Merton Abbey. We also have Strawberry Thief Red within our collection.
The design was inspired by William Morris’s observation of the thrushes under the strawberry nets at his home, Kelmscott Manor.
Our placemats are sold in packs of 4, and are a beautiful and practical way to not only add William Morris florals into your home, but set the table for both everyday and special occasion use.
Our Strawberry Thief placemats are 28.5 cm high by 39.5cm wide.
The 100% cotton cloth has been quilted either side of 10oz needlepoly wadding in a diamond stitch, the edge is bound in matching binding. As with all our items, the cotton was printed, quilted and the placemats manufactured in the United Kingdom. All our William Morris designs are licensed designs, printed both size and colour wise to our own specification to best suit our products.
