Description

The influential designer William Morris (British, 18341896) produced a full range of handcrafted goods during the Victorian era, from books to furniture to textiles. Morris believed that beauty, imagination, and order were the essential components of a successful design. Our spirited tie is based on Ispahan, a wool furnishing fabric created about 1888 by John Henry Dearle, Morriss chief designer. With its precise symmetry and intricate foliate motifs, this beautiful piece in the Museums collection shows the influence of Islamic textile patterns.
