Liberty Fabrics was established in London in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty and the carefully sourced highest quality cotton sourced from Lake Tana in Ethiopia became the foundation for Liberty Tana Lawn fabric. Handcarved woodcuts were originally used to apply print onto the Tana Lawn fabric. The ultra fine, but deceptively strong weave allows the fabric to take on the most intricate designs in the finest detail and most beautiful colours.
Shortly after opening on Regent Street London in 1875, Arthur Liberty printed the first Liberty fabrics. By the 1890s Liberty Fabrics was a byword for the very best of avant-garde textile design. Today, every bolt of Liberty fabric is the product of a bespoke production process: hand-drawn by the in-house design team and printed in its factory a stone’s throw from Lake Como and cared for by skilled technicians who oversee the production of over 150 different designs a year.
An Italian made, pure cotton, fine twill. The Garden of Temptation collection offers a visual feast of rich, symbolic imagery. Inspired by the works of Hieronymus Bosch, it captures a hidden fairy-tale world of thick foliage and luscious fruits, presented with a delectably twisted sense of humour. The colour palette is hallucinatory and opulent, with creeping tropical fronds and acidic paisleys sitting alongside blushing, light-toned hedgerow flora and fauna. Dive into an aesthetic, allegorical otherworld of arcane temptations and decadent decay.
This print is part of the designer deadstock collection.
Deadstock Fabric is surplus fabric from a fashion house or textile mill. Some brands burn or destroy their textiles making sure that no one else can use them, but by having the opportunity to work with deadstock fabric, it ensures that this doesn’t occur and in turn provides a much more sustainable approach to fashion. It also means that your piece is extremely unique, one of a kind and never to be repeated due to the low quantities of fabric available.
Please read the following as this deadstock release is different to other Curvature releases.
