Textiles in England have been heavily influenced by William Morris, his work adorning many upholstery and fabrics to this day. Morris was a Socialist believing in equality. However, his designs are now heavily priced in shops such as Liberties and sold at unaffordable prices for many. On reflection of Morris’s work, Urban Rhythm makes reference to social class within British society and explores the more accessible qualities of design surrounding us through daily life.
