The Peacock tapestry
The Peacock tapestry wallhanging is a detail from The Forest tapestry which was woven as part of a Morris & Co house redecoration commission in London. The 1887 original, woven in wool and silk on a cotton warp, is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. The background of acanthus leaves is typical of William Morris and the five animals used in The Forest tapestry, including this peacock, were by Philip Webb. John Henry Dearle designed the floral foreground.
This William Morris tapestry is now woven in France in 80% cotton and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. You can view this tapestry in the gallery of room settings.
The Peacock tapestry is available in two sizes.
