Morris & Co / Archive III Collection
‘Mary Isobel’ has been adapted from an embroidery designed in the 1890s by J. H. Dearle and shows scrolling acanthus leaves and flowers. The original fabric was embroidered in Adelaide, Australia by Mary Isobel Barr Smith, who probably ordered it from Morris & Co. as a kit. Morris & Co. first printed this design on linen in 2008 for Morris V and then reissued it as an embroidery on silk and on linen in 2011 for Archive Embroideries.
