William Morris had an intense
interest in plants and everything in his design work was
based on nature. His first design for embroidery was, in
fact, just an absolutely simple and realistic sprig of daisies.
He also drew great inspiration from medieval tapestries
and the rather tropical-looking flowers in this border design
can be seen in much of his work.
