This Snakes Head Fabric was Designed by William Morris in 1876, the design was originally block printed onto cotton.
Between 1875 and 1877 Morris designed a small group of patterns influenced by the colouring and patterns of Indian Textiles. This design was one of Morris’s favourites.
The design takes its name from the nodding snakes head fritillery blooms that complement the larger, more formal motifs.
