Category: William Morris Range

William Morris was a nineteenth century artist and writer. His work, in contribution towards the revival of traditional British textile arts, largely consists of floral and organic design, with a large nod towards the Romantic movement in reaction towards the industrial revolution of the time.

In the ‘William Morris Range’, Junk Montague uses Morris’ artwork for guitar restoration and production. Luthiers and Morris are hitherto not been commonly linked, although cigar box guitars and diddley bows were often used and made by the black American poor at the times when Morris lived and worked across the Atlantic ocean.
