"The Strawberry Thief" is arguably one of William Morris's most famous and enduring textile designs. Created in 1883, it features a repeated pattern of thrushes (birds) snatching strawberries from a lush garden. The design is rich in detail, showcasing Morris's fascination with nature and his ability to capture its beauty in his artwork.
This particular design was initially produced as a fabric for upholstery and drapery. It's known for its intricate depiction of the birds in motion, the foliage, and the strawberries, all interwoven in a mesmerising pattern.
"The Strawberry Thief" is not just admired for its visual appeal but also for its historical significance and contribution to the Arts and Crafts Movement. The design's popularity has endured over the years, and it remains one of Morris's most celebrated and recognisable works.
