William Morris was a British textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. It’s difficult to choose my favorite William Morris design because I love them all. Wallpapers, textiles, rugs. His designs are so natural. It has influenced me in interior design and my own mosaic designs. The wallpapers are hand printed and I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
