Compton was designed by John H Dearle (1860-1932) in England, in 1896.

The V&A is the world's leading museum of art, design and performance and celebrating creativity, they have put some wonderful kits together using DMC threads.

John Henry Dearle worked for Morris and Co. on textile designs during the turn of the 20th century. The legacy begins with him becoming Morris and Co.'s first apprentice tapestry weaver and his talents lead him to carry on the Morris and Co. aesthetic as Artistic Director after William Morris' death.
