This ‘The Brook’ wallpaper design was inspired by ‘The Brook’ Tapestry by J. H. Dearle and the Holy Grail Tapestries. Alison Gee, one of Morris & Co.’s designer created this stunning wallpaper. Fascinated by medievalism, Morris regarded tapestry as the highest form of all the decorative arts, and, through commissions to produce wall hangings, Morris & Co. produced many ecclesiastic and legend-inspired tapestries for private houses.
Today, digital printing recreates all the crispness and abundance of Alison’s beautiful artwork, which seeks to capture the character of medieval tapestries.
It is printed in two colourways as wide width (140cm wide) wallpaper, sold by the metre.
