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. Hand carved 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.
Liberty Tana Lawn's ultra-fine consistently even weave, has a silky feel that is often confused with silk, and its superior balance of body and drape.
Kathleen is a Liberty cotton from the Italian made Tana Lawn range. In hot pink, purple and pale gold on a white base. This Liberty Fabric print design takes inspiration from the bow in Alice's hair and the bow that ties her dress. This textile is based on a 1949 impression sheet from a Merton print works scarf, a unique and playful print. Tana Lawn cotton's distinctive hand-feel and translucent softness make this super-soft screen printed cotton fabric perfect for all occasions.
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.
