Fox & Chave Morris Snakeshead Silk Tie: best price for this iconic and vibrant William Morris floral design, inspired by Indian art: high quality silk, hand finished
This smart floral pattern, Snakeshead, is an iconic William Morris design, created in 1876. Morris was of course the greatest single influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement and the most successful textile designer and manufacturer of his day.
This design shows how Morris learnt from contemporary designs imported from India, particularly in the strongly contrasting reds and blues, and the way the three-dimensional forms of flowers and leaves could be transformed into flat patterns, printed using natural dyes.
This handsome tie has been created by Fox & Chave, whose inspirational wearable art is in the collections of galleries and museums worldwide. This is a favourite design among design connoisseurs.
