The influential designer William Morris (British, 1834–1896) produced a full range of handcrafted goods during the Victorian era—from books to furniture—but his wallpapers in particular have a timeless appeal. Morris believed that beauty, imagination, and order were the essential components of a successful design; all three are evident in his hand-block-printed wallpaper Pink and Rose
(ca. 1890). “Pink” in the title refers not to the color but to fragrant flowers in the genus Dianthus
. We’ve adapted Morris’s elegant botanical pattern in the Museum’s collection for our chic crossbody bag.
