Morris & Co - Honeysuckle Fabric

Color: Chalk/Yellow

Honeysuckle, designed by May Morris in 1883, is a realistic arrangement of the climbing scented flower with captivating entwining leaves. Although best known for her work with embroidery (May took over the embroidery department of Morris & Co. when she was only 23!), Morris's youngest daughter also designed several wallpapers. Honeysuckle is reimagined based on samples in the Morris & Co. archive and is available in classic and naturalistic colourways on printed cotton.

ABOUT MORRIS & CO.

As a political theorist, publisher, environmental campaigner, poet, as well as an outstanding designer, William Morris (1834–1896) was one of the single most influential figures of the nineteenth century. Under his direction Morris & Co. grew to the status of Arts & Crafts icon that it remains to this day.

Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. (1861–1875) was a furnishings and decorative arts manufacturer and retailer founded by the artist and designer William Morris with friends from the Pre-Raphaelites. With its successor Morris & Co. (1875–1940) the firm's medieval-inspired aesthetic and respect for hand-craftsmanship and traditional textile arts had a profound influence on the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century.

Although its most influential period was during the flourishing of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the 1880s and 1890s, Morris & Co. remained in operation in a limited fashion from World War I until its closure in 1940. The firm's designs are still sold today under licences given to Sanderson & Sons.
