Morris & Company
Moda has written about the collection "This latest collection of William Morris reproductions by Barbara Brackman is named for "the firm", as Morris and his friends called their design workshop. Morris & Company included the designers, dyers, printers and weavers who followed Morris's ideals and continued them into the twentieth century. Morris & Company was in business from 1875 to 1940.
This collection highlights William Morris’s skills at translating nature into pattern. From Eyebright, a tiny alpine bloom, to the showy Anemone, the florals reveal Morris’s close observation of his garden. Brother Rabbit features visitors with whom he shared the garden---birds and rabbits. The large print Wandle is named “to honor our helpful stream,” the river that flowed near the dyeworks, providing water for the coloring processes as well as a lovely landscape. Subtle colors echo the shades of the natural dyes so important to Morris’s vision. Morris & Company will inspire all who love the Arts and Crafts look for quilts, clothing and decorating."
