Morris & Co., influenced greatly by its chief partner William Morris, became famous for intricate floral and foliage motifs inspired by both Persian design and vintage European textiles in the late 1800’s Arts and Crafts Movement. This homage to the Wm. Morris style is adapted from Morris’ vine and pomegranate motifs, with an acanthus leaf border inspired by a Morris & Co. tapestry. The pure New Zealand worsted wool yarns have been specially dyed to create when woven, a random stria reminiscent of the aged colors found in antique manor house rugs. English Manor rugs are woven with a cotton foundation for strength and suppleness, and undergo Karastan’s signature luster-wash process to soften the hand and enhance the rich colors. Finished with a short, antique look fringe for easy maintenance.
