William Morris x Compton 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. 

'Compton' was produced in 1896 for the house of Laurence Hodson, near Wolverhampton. Once believed to be Morris's last design, it is now recognized as the work of John Dearle, who managed Morris & Company's block-printing operations at Merton Abbey and succeeded Morris as director. The pattern is, nevertheless, a definitive example of the company style. Tulips and poppies are woven into a rich, flowing pattern inspired by natural models.
