Featured items

A long length of Morris & Company woven Tulip & Rose and some Strawberry Thief print, both designed by William Morris. Another Arts & Crafts printed textile, this time designed and printed by Thomas Wardle Dusseldorf. Other Arts & Crafts pieces include a Japanese wallhanging embroiderd with cockerals. This type of piece was made for the European market, where all things Oriental were the rage. A decorative printed wallhanging of a scene from a 15th century woven tapestry has very Pre Raphaelite faces to the solders.  

Several new shawls, some embroidered in Delhi, others woven in Britain can be found in the Shawl section.

But do look in all sections for the latest pieces to be included.
