The Brer Rabbit is one of four designs from the first Totter + Tumble x Morris & Co. collection. In a beautiful, muted color way, it is the ideal design to style into a babies nursery.
The Colour Palette
We worked in partnership with the Morris & Co. designers at the Sanderson Design Group to bring our limited edition Totter + Tumble x Morris & Co. collection to life. For The Brer Rabbit color palette, soft hues of creamy sage and off-white evoke a sense of nature in a soft, gentle way.
The Pattern History
The Brer Rabbit design is taken from a 17th century Italian silk. It was named after the Uncle Remus children's books, a collection of animal stories, songs and folklore which Morris read to his daughters, Jenny and May. The motif features rabbits, birds and foliage, creating a charming, countryside-inspired designed.
Because we know one size doesn't fit all, The Brer Rabbit is available in all four sizes. The Standard
works as a multipurpose, alternative to an area rug, the Compact
is ideal for play spaces in open plan living, the Round
is a perfect portable play mat, that can be moved and unrolled wherever the supportive, memory foam floor covering is required and the Play Runner
is ideal for the kitchen or as an exercise mat.
In Real Life
The Brer Rabbit is gentle, story-evoking design that is at home in children's spaces, but can be equally as adored as an alternative to a rug in living areas. The chalky tones give it a gentle aesthetic as a play rug.
