The influential designer William Morris produced a full range of handcrafted goods during the Victorian era, from books to furniture to textiles. Morris believed that beauty, imagination, and order were the essential components of a successful design. This silk tie is based on Ispahan, a wool furnishing fabric created about 1888 by John Henry Dearle, Morris’s chief designer. With its precise symmetry and intricate foliate motifs, this beautiful piece shows the influence of Islamic textile patterns.
The tie measures 3.75" wide and is made of 100% silk.
