Blackberry, usually a prickly fruit-bearing bush of the genus Rubus is known for its dark edible fruits. Native chiefly to north temperate regions, wild blackberries are particularly abundant in eastern North America and on the Pacific coast of that continent and are cultivated in many areas of North America and Europe. Blackberries are a fairly good source of iron, vitamin C, and antioxidants and are generally eaten fresh, in preserves, or in baked goods such as cobblers and pies.

The Blackberry Collection has been developed in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

It was inspired by the V&A's Green Dining Room, the world's first museum cafe, and its fruit panels designed by the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. in 1886. William Morris was a major influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement, which adopted many of his ideals on the value of hand craftmanship and the maintenance of truth and honesty in the materials of production. His medieval-inspired designs are noted for their remarkable renderings of interweaving flora and fauna, especially fruits and birds. The designs demonstrate depth of tones, richness in colours and graduation of tints.

The collection is licensed by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England.
