Line Highlights -
The latest quilting collection from Liberty Fabrics is inspired by the historic epicenter of popular culture that is Carnaby Street – located just around the corner from the iconic Liberty flagship store.
The Carnaby Collection draws inspiration from the music, art, and fashion of the 1960s and ‘70s, featuring original designs of this period from the Liberty Archive.
Influenced by a colourful patchwork that was painted on Carnaby Street’s pavement during the 1970s, prints reflect the free-spirited, optimistic mood of that era – the magical landscape of Sunny Afternoon creates a psychedelic and colourful London park, while the hand-painted, bold and simplified flower forms in Bohemian Blooms are reminiscent of Pop Art patterns. The mesmerising swirls in Carnation Carnival draw influence from the Art Nouveau revival of the 1960s. Traditionally screen printed onto soft Lasenby cotton, the collection is available in three distinct colour stories.
Designer Profile -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.
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.
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.
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.
Liberty Fabrics are renowned for their fine detail, intricate pattern, and original Liberty colour palettes.
Liberty’s iconic floral and paisleys, geometrics, and colourful conversationals are translated onto the finest textiles and innovative cloths.
The archive has over 50,000 designs dating back to early 18th century. Many of Liberty’s fabrics were traditionally printed using wood blocks
