About 'The Forest'

The Forest Tapestry (1887) was designed by William Morris (flowers and background), architect and friend Philip Webb (animals) and John Henry Dearle (floral details). It was later woven out of wool and silk on cotten warp in the Merton Abbey workshops by Morris and Co. Dearle, Morris' favorite assistant, created the natural dyes for the tapestry. The inscription that was written across the original: "The Beasts that be in woodland waste, now sit and see nor ride nor haste" later appeared as "The Lion" in Morris's Poems by the Way (1891).

The 'Forest' design became one of the most popular in the history of Morris and Co. The original now hangs in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Forest is also available as border tiles, a backsplash, or mural.
