William Morris was born on this day in 1834.
William Morris a lot more than a designer, artist, activist, thinker and writer. He was a multi-gifted visionary. In his writings, he made a strong case for the appreciation of a hand-made life, the balance of self-sustaining labour and contemplation, the opportunity to create a way of life that was quite like our era’s cottage industries and urban homesteads that are both, a source of income for the household and the household itself – at a time when England was industrializing.
All good things come back as a trend.
