How long is a piece of string....That's the question. Never lose this garden and potting shed staple in its handy, little tin. Not only won't you lose it but it comes with a hole in the lid, so you can pop the string out of the top!

Dimensions : H12 x Dia. 7.5cm

The Strawberry Thief Pattern

This is Morris’s most famous pattern, designed in 1883, and is based on the thrushes that he observed stealing strawberries from his kitchen garden at Kelmscott Manor. It was made using a complex printing technique known as indigo discharge, and was an expensive luxury fabric when first produced.


The Honeysuckle Pattern

Honeysuckle was designed by May Morris in 1883, William’s youngest daughter. The design is a realistic arrangement of rambling flowers and entwining leaves. May had a talent for textiles and managed the embroidery department for her father.


This truly iconic British design has been perfected by modern techniques to provide current generations with a true-to-original pattern on a variety of materials not previously possible. Offering beauty, style and affordability – all combined with impeccable historical credentials.
