William De Morgan met William Morris in 1863 and remained a friend for the rest of his life. A leading figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement, De Morgan was talented in many fields, particularly stained glass and pottery.
Most of these needlepoint designs have been taken from a wide selection of six-inch ceramic tiles that he made in his workshop in Chelsea in the 1870s.
The canvas is printed with the interwoven stems and a chart is supplied for the lettering.
