About the Design & The Lewknor Carpet
The Lewknor carpet was commissioned from Flemish weavers in 1564 by a member of the Lewknor family, an established English noble family. The original design includes strawberry plants, daisies, cowslip, roses, lilies, blueberries, and cherries. The carpet was passed down through the family for nearly four centuries.
