A brief look back to William Morris
William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an iconic British figure devoted to textile designs. Among some of his many talents were poetry, lecturing and writing. However, his strongest skills revolved around Arts and Crafts. He was deeply inspired by nature, and we can notice this in every single one of his designs. Flowers, strawberries, daisies, just to name a few. Whilst visiting theWilliam Morris Gallery in Walthamstow we have discovered that William Morris, or “Topsy” as his friends called him, was also such an adventurer! He travelled to Iceland and he fell in love with the craftsmanship tradition and wandered around in the mysteries of the Nordic landscapes. We share our love of travel and discovering new cultures.
The majority of William Morris’ designs were handmade. He had adelicately complex and understated vision of beauty. In our eyes, his strikingly recognizable designs are the perfect definition of elegance. His work was meticulously planned and harmonized with natural schemes and patterns, resulting in stylized and luxurious pieces with a timeless charm.
Here at Lavolio, we could not help falling in love with William Morris’ seaweed design. The beauty of nature’s intricate designs are now paired with our handcrafted artisan sweets.
