The makers of MacGuffin Magazine; Kirsten Algera, Chris Kabel and Ernst Verhoeven

William Morris (1834-1896), artist, philosopher and political theorist, was one of the most outstanding and influential designers of the Arts and Crafts Movement and through his company, Morris & Co., he produced some of the most fashionable and exciting textiles and wallpapers of his era. His legacy continues today with Morris & Co. producing authentic versions of his original designs alongside new interpretations to create up to date fabrics and wallpapers with timeless appeal.
