Mary Isobel Wallpaper


$270 plus $27 GST per roll.

‘This Mary Isobel’ wallpaper pattern was adapted from an embroidery designed in the 1890s by J. H. Dearle. It features scrolling acanthus leaves and flowers.

This design has quite a history. The original fabric was embroidered in Adelaide, Australia by Mary Isobel Barr Smith, who probably ordered it from Morris & Co. as a kit. Morris & Co. first printed this design on linen in 2008 for Morris V and then reissued it as an embroidery on silk and on linen in 2011 for Archive Embroideries.

This wallpaper version of Mary Isobel is available in five colourways including a shimmering pale ‘silk blue’ version printed in mica inks.
