<p>A decorative set of three hand lotions, with floral designs inspired by the artwork of William Morris from the 19th century.<br /> <br /> The set features three miniature hand creams (30ml each) enriched with vitamin E, cocoa butter, shea butter, lemon and aloe extracts, jojoba oil and macadamia oil. The lotions are fragranced with the rich earthy base notes of amber, sandalwood and patchouli, and refreshing top notes of mandarin, bergamot and red berries on a centre of rose. <br /> <br /><br /> <strong>More about the range</strong><br /> <br /> William Morris (1834?96) was an influential writer, craftsman and social reformer.<br /> <br /> He founded a decorating firm in 1861 that eventually became Morris &amp; Co. Commissioning designs from, among others, his friends Burne-Jones and Rossetti, he produced a broad range of decorative arts from furniture and stained glass to wallpaper (Morris' celebrated textile and wallpaper patterns are still in commercial production today). <br /> <br /> This range is based on one of William Morris’ most popular textile designs, 'Strawberry Thief'. The subject is based on the thrushes that Morris found stealing fruit in his kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Oxfordshire. <br /> <br /> To print the pattern Morris used the ancient and painstaking indigodischarge method that he admired above all forms of printing. Strawberry Thief was one of Morris &amp; Co’s most expensive cottons but customers were not put off by the high price as it proved to be one of the most commercially successful patterns.</p>

More about William Morris:

William Morris (1834-1896) was an influential writer, craftsman and social reformer. He founded a decorating firm in 1861 that eventually became Morris & Co. Through commissioned designs, he produced a broad range of decorative arts from furniture and stained glass to wallpaper. Morris' celebrated textile and wallpaper patterns are still in commercial production today.

This range is based on one of William Morris’ most popular textile designs, The Strawberry Thief. The subject is based on the thrushes that Morris found stealing fruit in his kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Oxfordshire.

The British Museum’s Britain, Europe and Prehistory department currently holds several earthenware tiles designed by William Morris and painted at Morris & Co.

A delightful gift for the person who needs to indulge in a little pampering.
