William Morris Photographic Quote Trellis Floral Cotton Tea Towel.
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.
Paired with the Trellis design is a photograph of William Morris, his signature and one of his most famous quotes:
"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
All elements of the apron have been Licensed along with the William Morris Trellis design.
