In 2024 we re-launch our collaboration with The William Morris Gallery - the world-renowned art organization that houses and preserves one of the best collections in the world of the work of the great artist William Morris (1834-1896). The William Morris Gallery Collection is a unique eyewear collection that is made with the ethos of William Morris in mind - art, craftsmanship, design and true collaboration. The new line of eyewear takes the best of the iconic prints and fabrics and applies them to a stunning range of wearable eyewear.

With a passion for eyewear, George Clarke joins the UK based brand and has instantly instilled a creative flair and unique design aesthetic to the new William Morris collections.
