Tiles from Textiles: Medieval and Morris Designs

Designs from Fabric, Embroidery, Wallpaper, and Tapestries

...everything made by man's hands has a form, which must be either beautiful or ugly; beautiful if it is in accord with Nature, and helps her; ugly if it is discordant with Nature, and thwarts her; it cannot be indifferent.. ~William Morris

Morris himself preferred tapestries, but the cost put them out of reach for all but the wealthy class.
