Despite the rise of industrial manufacturing, William Morris believed in craftsmanship. Along with other leading painters, Morris (British, 1834–1896) founded what would become Morris & Company, producing decorative textiles and furnishings in a way that intimately linked artist and craftsman and returned to less mechanised methods of production. Though the company used newer aniline dyes, Morris attempted to revive the use of natural dyes such as indigo through discharge printing. His works are now considered exemplary of the Arts and Crafts movement and important to the development of Art Nouveau. The four Morris designs embossed on these notecards were part of larger patterns printed or woven on cotton, silk, or linen by Morris & Company.
