Tapestry Description

Flora wall tapestry

The Flora wall tapestry is a 1885 tapestry design by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. It was originally woven at the Morris & Co workshops at Merton Abbey, and represents Spring (whereas Pomona represents Autumn).

The gothic text is taken from the Verses for Pictures section of “Poems by the Way” by William Morris:
I am the handmaid of the earth,
I broider fair her glorious gown,
And deck her on her days of mirth
With many a garland of renown.

And while Earth’s little ones are fain
And play about the Mother’s hem,
I scatter every gift I gain
From sun and wind to gladden them.

The Flora wall tapestry is now woven in France in 100% cotton and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. Here in the home of one of our customers in British Columbia:
