By Morris & Co.
The Swans tile was designed by Morris c.1862. These original small tiles were used repeatedly as patterned tiled borders, often around narrative scenes painted onto tiles. They were also used mixed with other tiles; examples can be found in the fireplace at Kelmscott Manor, Oxfordshire. The ‘Swans’ fabric recreates the look of the very tonal, spontaneous hand-painted tiles and is available in two colourways, printed onto linen union.
