The Arts and Crafts Movement was at its height in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin and the romantic idealization of a craftsman taking pride in his work. The movement influenced creative activity in architecture, furniture design, the decorative arts and even gardens.

These miniature wallpapers have been created from original designs in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

These designs are all available as 1:12th and 1:24th scale wallpaper, printed silk crêpe de chine and printed cotton.


‘Daisy’

This is the earliest wallpaper design by William Morris (1834 – 1896) and was block printed in 1864 by Jeffrey and Co.


‘Compton’

A block printed wallpaper designed by John Henry Dearle and produced for Morris and Co. by Jeffrey & Co. in 1896 – the year of Morris’s death. Dearle subsequently became Design Director of Morris & Co.


‘Golden Lily’

Designed in 1899 by J.H. Dearle for Morris & Co. This was one of Morris & Co.’s most enduring designs.


‘Passion Flower’

Taken from an early 20th century textile design by C.F.A Voysey.

Voysey (1857 – 1941) was a major architect of the Arts and Crafts movement and an influential turn of the century designer. He established his practice in 1882 but his exceptional talent for pattern making led him to concentrate his early career on designing for wallpapers, furnishings and fabrics. This passion flower design on a striking red background is a pattern for a textile.


‘Honeysuckle’

This is an untitled wallpaper design by Albert Joseph Moore, dating from around 1860. Although Moore (1841 – 1893) was better known as a painter of portraits, landscapes and languorous female figures, in the period up to 1870, as well as many paintings and drawings, he produced a great variety of decorative work.
