William Morris (1834–1896) was a multifaceted figure in the world of 19th-century art and design, known for his contributions as a designer, craftsman, writer, and socialist. Born in Walthamstow, Essex, England, Morris became one of the most significant cultural figures of the Victorian era, embodying the principles of the Arts and Crafts Movement, which he helped to found.

Inspired by the writings of John Ruskin, Morris became committed to the idea that beauty, craftsmanship, and art should be a part of everyday life. He left a lasting impact on the decorative arts, design, and craftsmanship, and his principles have influenced countless artists, designers, and craftspeople. His belief in the importance of art, beauty, and quality in everyday life continues to resonate today, that’s why we are so excited to be able to welcome a new range of fabric designs from the actual archives of the great designer.
