The Forest tapestry
William Morris wall tapestries
The Forest tapestry, like The Peacock tapestry, was designed by Philip Webb with some involvement by William Morris and John Henry Dearle. His study of five creatures, a hare, lion, fox, peacock and raven is here in a shorter more practical shape, omitting the birds, since the original was 4′ high and nearly 15′ long. This was woven in wool and silk on a cotton warp by Morris & Co at Merton Abbey in 1887.
One of our more popular William Morris wall tapestries, it is woven in France in 80% cotton and 20% cotton. The tapestry is fully lined, with a rod pocket – we supply suggestions for hanging tapestries with every order.
