This attractive leather cardholder features William Morris’ Strawberry Thief pattern, a symmetrical design featuring thrushes investigating a hedgerow in search of fruit. The pattern was designed in 1883 as a printed cotton furnishing textile. Morris was the central figure in the British Arts and Crafts movement, and a huge archive of his original designs is held at the V&A.
The classic cardholder is made by a 3rd-generation Scottish company from digitally printed recycled leather, obtained from industrial glove and bag off-cuts, making use of material that would ordinarily be discarded. The holder is embossed inside with the V&A logo. 
Created exclusively for the V&A.


Closed 7.7cm x 10.7cm, open 15.7cm x 10.7cm


Recycled leather. Occasional cleaning with a dry cloth is all that is necessary to maintain an attractive lustre

About the designer
William Morris

William Morris

Textile designer, writer and social pioneer, William Morris and his work have long been associated with the V&A. In 1865, his company was commissioned to design the West Dining Room at the museum, which features early examples of a number of the organic patterns that would make his name. Born in Walthamstow in 1836, Morris was captivated by nature from childhood, spending much of his time exploring Epping Forest and the surrounding countryside. These themes informed much of his textile design, and his mastery of pattern ensured an enduring appeal.
