inspiration for William Morris' best loved Strawberry Thief design came
while he watched thrushes stealing the strawberries from his garden at
Kelmscott Manor. Despite his frustrations at losing his fruit, rumour has
it that Morris ordered that the birds be left to eat in peace.
Morris spent years researching the lost art of natural dyeing and the
strong blues in Strawberry Thief are the result of the indigo discharge
method. Some of the original William Morris fabric still hangs iin
Kelmscott Manor and the fabric design is produced today by Liberty of
