Collection: Liberty Fabrics
History Arthur Lasenby Liberty first opened the Liberty store on Regent Street in London on May 15, 1875, selling imported ornaments, textiles and artefacts from the East. Liberty’s wish was to influence the public’s taste by giving them the opportunity to buy beautiful and otherwise unattainable things.
Liberty Fabrics Due the success of the imported fabrics, Liberty set up an in-house design studio to produce its own eclectic range of designs. Now Liberty Fabrics has been designing and printing fabrics for over 140 years. Internationally recognised as a leader in print design and textile innovation, the in-house design team continues to create new and original prints each season.
Design Studio Based in Soho, London, the Liberty Design Studio creates a new collection of up to 40 original designs each season. Inspired by Art, Architecture, History, Music, Flora, Fauna. Each collection is themed and tells a unique story.
Artwork The Liberty Design Studio is committed to using traditional methods of design. Each design is created by hand using a variation of techniques: paint, pencil, ink as well as specialist computer textile packages.
