Needlepoint kit. Designed after the famous Compton wallpaper design. Can be finished as a cushion, chair seat, stool top, or firescreen. Available as a canvas also (please see Beth Russell Needlepoint: Canvasses)
William Morris Co. produced the beautiful Compton design in 1896, as part of the furnishings for Compton Hall, Wolverhampton. Wallpapers and fabrics featuring the Compton design are still produced by Arthur Sanderson & Sons of London. In order to give the rug a centre, the design needed to be slightly adjusted and then reversed. The kits are true to the original colours, with three shades blended in the background to retain its soft warm tone. The plain black border serves to frame the intricate design.
Available now in two versions: brown and blue (please specify).
Design size: 42x71", Canvas: 7 mesh Zweigart Cream Rug Canvas, overall size: 47x78".
