Blue Swirling foliage William Morris pattern fabric button brooch

Blue Swirling foliage William Morris pattern fabric button brooch
Love this


This William Morris & Co inspired blue swirling leaves and flower brooch is made using a beautiful cotton fabric from Moda in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, recreating some of William Morris's patterns into fabrics.

I've selected a lovely section of an unfurling leaf curving around one half of the brooch, with a five petal flower and beige hints of swirling foliage on a cream background. I've then created a 38mm diameter fabric covered flat backed button.

On the back of the button, I have glued a birch plywood circle within the button blank and a stainless steel brooch pin with a safety catch to the plywood disc.

This unique brooch will come to you safe and carefully packaged in a UK Made eco-friendly recycled kraft card deep jewellery box (hand-folded by me!) - perfect for lovers of William Morris & Co patterns, Pre-Raphaelite or Arts & Crafts movement (or as a treat for yourself!)

As it is made from 100% cotton fabric, it could also be suitable for a 2nd wedding anniversary gift!


Leicester was originally designed by J.H. Dearle in 1912 as a block printed wallpaper. Inspired by Morris' earlier design 'Bachelors Button' of 1892, Leicester is a lovely design that harks back to the medieval period and features a recurring theme of scrolling acanthus leaves with various flowers including Dianthus (Pinks) and golden daisies. This design was taken from an original pattern book held in the V & A archives.
