A beautiful boxed set of 16 cards with matching envelopes in 4 different designs that feature prints inspired by the foliage-filled fabrics of the Arts and Crafts Movement, with details from William Morris and C.F.A. Voysey designs held in the museum's stunning collection. Inspired by the ideas of John Ruskin and William Morris, the Arts and Crafts Movement began in Britain around 1880 and quickly spread to America, Europe and Japan. Nature was an important source of inspiration for Arts & Crafts designers and patterns were inspired by the flora and fauna of the British countryside.
