Viewed: 0 time

The Bullerswood carpet (measuring approximately 4 m wide by 7.5 m long) is one of the objects on display in the V&A’s British Galleries. The carpet was designed by William Morris (1834–1896) and woven by Morris & Co, Hammersmith, London, in about 1889. It has a cotton warp, jute weft, and woollen pile coloured with a range of natural dyes. The richly-coloured complex design consists of scrolling arabesques with stylised flowers and birds and a border with repeat motifs of leaves and flowers.
