William Morris x Ancathus 1872 Sock

  • $28.00

In a collaboration with the William Morris Gallery, we have created a collection of socks inspired by the Victorian artist's design and ethos - the perfect modern-day fusion of beautiful designs and the finest traditions of British manufacturing. 

'Acanthus' is an early Morris pattern and no pattern is more iconic William Morris. 

Morris described Acanthus as a 'luxurious' pattern, an appropriate description since early on, Morris textiles were only available to the wealthy class. Acanthus later found its way to printed wallpaper and eventually to large pattern printed wallpaper, printed at Merton Abbey. These larger patterns were slower to be well-received by the middle classes than the textiles had been by aristocratic and artsy circles.
