Stunning William Morris wallpaper inspired by The Brook Tapestry by J. H. Dearle and the Holy Grail Tapestries.
‘The Brook’ is digital printing recreates all the crispness and abundance of this beautiful artwork, which seeks to capture the character of medieval tapestries.
William Morris began designing wallpapers in the 1860s which were hand printed by Jeffrey & Co. in London using wood blocks and mineral based natural pigments. Along with other designers, most notably John Henry Dearle, Morris created stunningly beautiful wallpapers with complex rhythms and movement which seemed to capture the randomness and symmetry of nature.
These same designs are produced today by machine, using surface or ‘flexographic’ rollers and modern inks at the factory in Loughborough, England, giving the appearance of the block-printed originals. Enduring favourites are sometimes given a contemporary twist by the Morris & Co. studio, and lesser known wallpapers may receive a new lease of life, creating classics for the future.
