William Morris Trellis 132 x 178 cm Cotton Floral Tablecloth
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.
Measurements: The tablecloth measures 132 cm across the width, 178 cm long and has a hemmed edge.
As with all our products, our William Morris Trellis design has been printed and manufactured in the north of England.
The tablecloth is machine washable at 40 degrees.
Matching napkins, placemats, aprons, tea towels, ovengloves and even pvc bags!
We also have two other sizes of Trellis tablecloths: 132 x 229 cm and 147cm round.
