Alexander Ionides was one of Morris' most important patrons. He owned a magnificent house in Holland Park, London. In the late 1800s he commissioned Morris to produce a large hand-tufted carpet for his home. The design was called Carbrook and the original now rests with the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Beth Russell, while retaining all the beautiful detail, has reduced the design to more manageable proportions and re-named it Holland Park. The kit uses Appletons tapestry wool on 8hpi canvas and measures 31" x 52" (79 x 132cm).
Contents: Printed canvas, wool, needle and full instructions.

William Morris produced a very pretty watercolour and ink sketch some time between 1880 - 1896, which is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Beth Russell has transformed this delicate painting into a very elegant needlepoint rug, as usual keeping to Morris' sensitive colouring and proportions. The kit uses Appletons tapestry wool on 8hpi canvas and measures 25" x 50" (63.5 x 127cm).
Contents: Printed canvas, wool, needle and full instructions.
