This Licensed William Morris Design was first produced in May 1882.
The design was first produced at Merton Abbey using the Indigo discharge method of printing.
The Birds and rabbits within the design were drawn by Philip Webb.
Brother Rabbit is also known as Brer rabbit.
The design was 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.
If you purchase more than half a metre the fabric will be sent as one continuous piece.
As with all natural fibres, cotton will contract so slight shrinkage should be allowed for.
The fabric is machine washable at 30 degrees.

Yet Our Fabric Is Less Expensive - How Do We Do It?
Our designs come either from our own historic archive or they are independently-licensed William Morris designs. We commission the prints after deciding on the sizing of the design and which colours are needed. We originate the printing screens and commission printing onto our high-quality 100% cotton fabric.
