A wonderful Art Nouveau design around the textile by William Morris, the master of textiles in the 19th and early 20th Century. The Strawberry Thieves is one of William Morris's most popular repeating designs for textiles. It takes as its subject the thrushes that Morris found stealing fruit in his kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Oxfordshire.
To print the pattern, Morris used the painstaking indigo-discharge method he admired above all forms of printing. He first attempted to print by this method in 1875, but it was not until 1881, when he moved into his factory at Merton Abbey, near Wimbledon, that he succeeded.
In May 1883 Morris wrote to his daughter, “I was a great deal at Merton last week ... anxiously superintending the first printing of the Strawberry thief, which I think we shall manage this time.” Pleased with this success, he registered the design with the Patents Office. This pattern was the first design using the technique in which red (in this case alizarin dye) and yellow (weld) were added to the basic blue and white ground.

To ensure the leather print on your product is as durable as possible, we’ve worked hard refining our printing process and craftsmanship. As leather has a naturally textured surface, you may notice small surface differences. This is common for natural leather and leather printing. All leathers age naturally according to usage, and this can cause the print to wrinkle or fade slightly over time. It is possible the base colour may show through the leather as it ages with wear. When not in use, we recommend storing your product in a protective dust bag or box to keep it looking its best.
• Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme heat, sunlight, water, and chemical cleaners to maintain a bright and long-lasting print.
• Avoid contact with light-coloured fabrics or upholstery, as the colour may transfer.
• While a light rain shower is unlikely to harm, we recommend protecting from rain. Should your product get wet, allow it to dry naturally away from direct heat.
• To clean the surface, wipe only with a damp lint-free cotton cloth.
