One of William Morris’ most loved prints, Strawberry Thief in our favorite aqua colorway provides the face of this charming pillow. The reverse is a matching super soft aqua velvet. The 2 sides are united in a soft chenille chevron braid in taupe and cream. This classic takes as its subject the thrushes that Morris found stealing fruit in his kitchen garden of his countryside home Kelmscott Manor, in Oxfordshire. To print the pattern Morris used the painstaking indigo-discharge method he admired above all forms of printing. He first attempted to print by this method in 1875 but it was not until 1883 that he perfected and registered the method. With Strawberry Thief, Morris perfected the indigo-discharge process, which required the entire cloth to be dyed blue before it was bleached and block printed, in this case with more colors than any of his other textiles.
