Our retro flowers cross stitch pattern was inspired by the flowers in a 19th century textile, designed by the famous British artist William Morris.
We think you’ll love stitching our attractive design in DMC Shell Pink, Mocha and Pale Apple Green. It’s looks wonderful on ivory 14 count Aida cloth.
William Morris was one of Britain’s top designers in the 19th century. He designed and produced a stunning range of textiles, wallpapers and tiles – even book designs. His designs are authentic Art Nouveau and have a real place in contemporary homes and commercial buildings.
Living in the industrial-era this artist was committed to creating “alternatives to the dehumanising industrial systems that produced poor-quality, ‘unnatural’ objects”. He is famous for telling people to have nothing in their homes that wasn’t either useful or beautiful.
We adore William Morris designs and you’ll find more to stitch in the shop.
