Primrose & Columbine
By Morris & Co.
Morris interpreted two of the flower motifs from his early wallpapers into tile designs c. 1865. They were modified from the wallpaper so that they could be hand-painted with quick brushstrokes onto the tiles. The unsophisticated drawings of the flowers appealed to Morris as they kept a feeling of cottage gardens; “I have the unmistakeable suggestions of gardens and fields.” This new fabric version of his tile design replicates the simplicity and freshness of those beautiful Morris tiles and is printed onto linen union in four colourways.
