Willow Bough

William Morris Tiles from Textile Designs

Whatever you have in your rooms, think first of the walls; for they are that which makes your house and home; and if you don't make some sacrifice in their favour, you will find that your chambers have a kind of makeshift lodging appearance about them, however rich and handsome your movables may be. ~William Morris

After the dissolution of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. ('The Firm'), Morris founded his own company, Morris and Co., setting up shop at 449 Oxford Street. By this time, Morris's attention had turned to woven fabrics. He employed Louis Bazin, who created the first pattern, Willow, in 1877, using a Jacquard Loom in a workshop near Queen Square. Willow was first implented in fabric. It later became one of Morris and Co.'s most popular wallpaper designs.
