The Strawberry Thief Pattern
This is Morris' 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.
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.
Supporting the true home of William Morris with a royalty being paid to the William Morris Gallery and thus supporting the preservation of the patterns and creations of the world famous iconic designer and his family.
