Morris & Co. Floral Mint lip balm
Delivery to Hungary: Free for all orders above 12 000 HUF.
Fragrant lip balm in a tin, and in gift package. The glamorous flower patterns are made for William Morris’s workshop, which became famous for its wallpapers and textile patterns, and thanks to these patterns, we won’t throw away the tiny jar even after we’ve run out of lip care. In addition to its beauty, we’ll love it for the tiny size as it fits in even the smallest bag, so we never have to worry about showing up to a meeting with dry lips.

As the success of Morris & Co. Grew in the 18070s and Moris's name bacame more famous, it was necessary to take on more designers. Morris himself maintained a firm grip over production, and after his death in 1896 his floral vocabulary enabled those working for the firm to produce patterns firmly attributable to Morris & Co. Morris's most successful pupil was John Henry Dearle (1859-1902). Dearle began his long employment with Morris & Co working as a teenager in the firm's Oxford Street shop. William Morris took him under his wing and trained him to work firstly in the stain glass and then as his tapestry assistant. By the early 1880s, Dearle was responsible for training tapestry assistants for the firm. His natural aptitude for design then lead him to becoming the key designer for embroidery patterns at Morris & Co. After the death of William Morris, Dearle became Art Director of Morris & Co and was responsible for many popular later floral designs.
