For Autumn/Winter 2019’s Aesthetic Renaissance collection, Liberty Fabrics’ in-house design team drew inspiration from the adventurous life and artistic inspirations of their founder, Sir Arthur Lasenby Liberty. Traveller, tastemaker and gentleman, Arthur’s passion for globetrotting and treasure-hunting with his wife Emma forms the basis of Liberty’s enduring appeal. Inspirations swing from expeditions in faraway lands to the peace and quiet of English country gardens, via the opulently stylised forms of the Aesthetic Movement and Art Nouveau styles. This Liberty Lido A Tana Lawn Fabric offers a fun-filled ode to the joy of swimming. A collage of Liberty swimmers dive, kick, jump and splash as they compete to be crowned the winner of the Liberty employee’s aquatic race. Bold reds, greens and purples contrast against the rich navy background.
Tana Lawn cotton’s distinctive hand-feel and translucent softness make it a versatile favourite. A modern masterpiece of production, it is the perfect canvas to display Liberty Fabrics' most iconic prints. This is a cotton that behaves like silk – ultra-fine, with a fluid hand-feel and intense depth of colour that is truly unmatchable. An everyday marvel of a dress material, Tana Lawn cotton is soft yet durable, cooling yet warming, and even machine washable.
