Product Description

This pattern was designed by Susan Williams-Ellis’ eldest daughter Anwyl, inspired by a traditional English carol.

Anwyl used antique illustrations of rich green foliage and lush red berries to evoke the spirit of Christmas. The first verse of the Holly and the Ivy carol is as follows: “The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown, of all the trees that are in the wood, the holly bears the crown”. These lines in an elegant script form part of the design. Holly and ivy have been used as Christmas decorations since the fifteenth century.
