    About

    The floral pattern of this beautiful woolen shawl has been inspired by a detail from 'Compton', a lush botanical Victorian-era wallpaper pattern designed in 1896 by John Henry Dearle (British, 1860–1932)— William Morris's chief designer at Morris & Co.

    William Morris was one of the most influential figures of the British Victorian era, and in 1861 founded the interior design firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner, & Co. with other leading artistic figures, such as Edward Burne-Jones. Calling themselves "fine art workmen", they deliberately broke down the modern barrier between fine and decorative art, and established an equivalent to the cooperative guilds of the Middle Ages. Morris & Co. designed murals, embroidery, stained glass, and tiles, often with nature motifs such as this floral pattern.
