William Morris is considered by many to be the greatest pattern designer of the Victorian age. William Morris was one of the examiners of the South Kensington Science & Art department, where he had the opportunity to study a recently acquired collection of Persian carpets, textiles, and ceramics.
Having studied extensively over a period of time, William Morris began designing and producing hand knotted rugs in England in the 1880s. Although the inspiration for William Morrisí designs came from Persian carpets, the style of William Morris rugs is distinctly different to floral rugs normally associated with Persian and Moghul weaving. The rugs in our William Morris collection are made with handspun wool and vegetable dyes and are based on some of the styles William Morris developed in the 19th century.
This is one of the finest in our inventory.

How to care for your rug:
Vacuum regularly to prevent dirt from the surface
If spills occur, do not rub or spread the stain. Simply blot the affected area with a dry cloth or a tissue to absorb the stain and work towards the stain.
Use warm water diluted in clear white vinegar to manage the dyes
It's recommended that you rotate the rug (not too often) to equalize the surface wear
If heavy furniture is placed over the rug, use a protector to avoid damaging the surface of the rug.
If your carpet is of hand-knotted wool, do not worry about furniture indents, simple vacuuming against the pile will prop up the surface once again.
Professional cleaning: Every year, depending on the usage of the rug
Surface shedding: Non natural materials will not shed. Hand Knotted rugs do not shed.
