The Seaweed pattern was designed as a wallpaper by John Henry Dearle for Morris & Co. in the late C19th. Dearle began his long employment with Morris & Co working as a teenager in the firm's Oxford Street shop. William Morris took him under his wing and trained him to work firstly in the stain glass and then as his tapestry assistant. By the early 1880s, Dearle was responsible for training tapestry assistants for the firm. After the death of William Morris in 1896, Dearle became Art Director of Morris & Co.
