Morris &Co. was founded by the well renowned artist and designer William Morris, alongside Ford Madox Brown, Charles Faulkner, P.P. Marchell and others working in the Pre-Raphaelite era. Distinguished by their focus on hand-craftsmanship and traditional textile arts, their designs echo a medieval-inspired aesthetic; it is this that led them to have such a big infulence on the decoration of churches and houses well into the 20th Century.
The company flourished in the harts and crafts movement of the 1880s and 1890s, only closing in 1940, with their designs still sold at Liberty in London. Our current stock of Morris &Co. pieces below.
