Morris & Co. Melsetter Collection Now in SA

WORDS Michaela Stehr

The Melsetter collection from fabric and wallpaper brand Morris & Co, is now available in South Africa.

The range features 10 beautiful wallpapers, seven prints and seven embroideries that pay homage to May Morris (1862 – 1938), an esteemed embroiderer, designer, teacher and campaigner, who was also the daughter of Morris & Co. founder, William Morris.

“Melsetter showcases the incredible talents of May Morris and other leading female embroiders from the Arts and Crafts movement,” says Rebecca Craig, Head Of Design at Morris & Co. “Their flawless techniques and distinctive style earned a place in our hearts, deserving to be recognised and enjoyed. May’s commitment to her own creative vision and to her father’s ideals are celebrated in Melsetter, a collection of beautiful, useable fabrics and wallpapers, each with their own historical provenance.”

The collection is available exclusively through St Leger & Viney. For more information, visit
