Once we go into the past of Portmeirion, we will come to know that in early 1970’s, the founder of this group named “Susan Williams” searched for some decorative pieces in a shop. She found a book in which different design of flowers was introduced to various decoration pieces and pottery. That book inspired Susan to go ahead to transfer the concept to tableware. Susan also decided to add a variety of flower patterns in addition to the first idea from the book. She came back and thought about the different designs. Then Susan found another book in where Susan obtained another idea about 40 details and poems. These details and poetries brought out the hidden talent of Susan, and she decided to make different designs. Susan also added butterflies and some other little beautiful insects in her designs to make her designs more attractive. She also put an important addition which is the triple-leaf border that has become Portmeirion identity icon up untill now.
