Oven glove in William Morris's Strawberry Thief design.


Strawberry Thief was first produced in 1883. The design was a triumph for Morris as it marked the perfecting of the indigo-discharge technique of printing at Merton Abbey.

The design was inspired by William Morris's observation of the thrushes under the strawberry nets at his home, Kelmscott Manor.


The image is licensed from The William Morris Society's collection, and the oven glove is printed and manufactured in the UK by Laura's Beau.



Measurements: 84 cm long by 20 cm wide.

The oven gloves contain 10oz needlepoly wadding which has been sewn with a diamond quilting. The back of the hands are protected with a 2oz coravin covered backhand. The oven glove conforms to British Standard.

The oven glove edge is bound with a matching Strawberry Thief binding.

Machine washable at 40 degrees.
