I only have one small fragment left of this design, which would look good framed or mounted, should you wish to indulge yourself or give as a gift. It could also be incorporated into a cushion.
Designed by Wiliam Morris on 20 January 1876 and woven by the Heckmondwike Manufacturing Company, Heckmondwike, Yorkshire.
This design is the first dateable design by Morris for furnishing textiles. Morris had no facilities to weave commercial quantities of cloth himself so he ssked Heckmondwike to weave the fabric for him. Already they were producing Kidderminster type carpeting in this design.*
The wool and cotton triple cloth woven with tulips and roses, in shades of lime and dark green, yellow, beige and pale blue.
C. 10 1/2 x 8 in; 27 x 20 cm...............
In good condition.
