Morris & Essex
Eliza Jane Curtis
Everything at Morris & Essex is handmade and printed by Eliza Jane Curtis at her studio in Gorham. The designs are inspired by a rich mix of sources including vintage ephemera, nature and fantasy, geometry, folk art and traditional patterns and textiles from around the world. Eliza chooses to work with organic, natural and sustainable materials as much as possible. She loves creating a world filled with pattern and color, turning her designs into useful products that serve a need and make someone happy, and that last for years and years.
“I believe that the things we use everyday are important and valuable; rather than contributing to a culture of disposable goods, I hope to produce durable, meaningful, beautiful items that last beyond the first impression. I hope that the pleasure I take in designing and making is evident in the finished products.”
