William Morris Collection 2019

‘A house that I love with a reasonable love I think: for though my words may give you no idea of any special charm about it, yet I assure you that the charm is there; so much has the old house grown up out of the soil and the lives of those that lived on it: some thin thread of tradition, a half-anxious sense of the delight of meadow and acre and wood and river; a certain amount (not too much let us hope) of common sense, a liking for making material serve one's turn, and perhaps at bottom some little grain of sentiment...’ - William Morris

William Morris is best known as one of the Nineteenth Century's most celebrated designers. A key figure in the Arts & Crafts Movement, Morris championed a principle of handmade production that did not chime with the Victorian era's focus on industrial 'progress'.

Itself a lone survivor from the Arts and Crafts movement, Moorcroft has kept the spirit of Morris’s work alive. We are delighted to present a collection dedicated to this remarkable man, inspired by his wallpapers and textiles but also carpets, embroideries, tapestries, tiles and book designs.
