Liberty of London
is a design house based in London with a history dating back to 1875. They are a design house and also sell fabric in addition to products. Their product is described as being cutting edge, savvy and avant-garde. To the shopper they are probably most well known for their classic ditsy floral prints. Pictured above is a print in Tana Lawn fabric which is a silky light weight cotton perfect for dresses, quilts and hair accessories. Liberty has branched out into many new categories; apparel, accessories, stationery, lighting, home and more.
Two that are very exciting to me as a designer are their new line of quilting weight fabrics, the Bloomsbury collection and their collaboration with Nike.
The new Lifestyle Collection called Bloomsbury, consists of 11 prints in 5 colorways. These are retro, kitchsy, fun, and colorful! A perfect weight for dresses, totes, aprons, quilts, table cloths, curtains and so much more. The Bloomsbury collection is inspired by the historic district in London. Rich in cultural history and home to the British Museum, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and the University of London. This is an eclectic mix inspired by the abundance of flowers and plants in the area.
If you are a designer or crafter definitely make a point of checking out these new fabrics. I think I will be making some aprons and dresses for my nieces with these bright, happy prints!
