Glastonbury Brocade, originally designed by William Perkins around 1890 A.D., features a Rose and a Crown of Thorns. Legend has it that Joseph of Arimathea visited Glastonbury, England, in the first century and planted a thorn tree on Wearyall Hill. Clippings from the original tree, cut down during the English Civil War, were used to replant a new tree in 1951. This thorn tree is a symbol of interest for both Pagans and Christians, flowering around Easter and Christmas. With a small pattern repeat, Glastonbury Brocade carries a rich heritage and has been widely used for many years.
