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.

Liberty Fabrics
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.

Design Studio
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.

Artwork
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.

Design
Liberty Fabrics are renowned for their fine detail, intricate pattern and original Liberty colour palettes.

Fabric
Liberty’s iconic floral and paisleys, geometrics and colourful conversationals are translated onto the finest textiles and innovative cloths.

Archive
The archive has over 50,000 designs dating back to early 18th century. Many of Liberty’s fabrics were traditionally printed using wood blocks

The Summer House Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The latest collection from the Liberty Fabrics design studio drew inspiration from the interiors of 17th and 19th century orangeries. The Summer House quilting collection illustrates the grand architecture of these structures – paying homage to the details of decorative tiled flooring, iron works and trellises. Archival artworks are translated into conversational prints inspired by citrus fruits, plants and vines weaving amongst detailed ironworks, while floral geometric designs evoke the forms of intricate tiles.

The Wiltshire Shadow Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The Liberty Fabrics design team have selected a favourite print to become the perfect blender for quilting. Originally designed for Liberty Fabrics in 1933, Wiltshire has been reimagined into a two-colour shadow silhouette to become the perfect fabric blender. The tonal leaf and berry print is available in a multitude of colourways, designed to coordinate with our vast archive of Liberty prints for a seamless mix-and-match effect. Printed onto soft Lasenby cotton, this base is suited for craft projects and classic patchwork quilting – the possibilities are as endless as your imagination. View the collection here.

The Emporium Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The latest quilting collection from Liberty Fabrics is inspired by the historic architecture and interiors of Liberty’s iconic London flagship store. The Emporium Collection’s eclectic mix of floral, paisley and geometric designs draw from ornately carved wooden details, hand-crafted tilework, and the flagship’s beautiful flower stall. The collection is available in three distinct colour stories, perfect for the modern interior. Each colour story reflects a different facet of the magnificent store. Regal blue and mustard give a nod to the tiled interiors, while an exuberant multicolour story is inspired by the oriental rug room. Finally, a monochromatic colour story is balanced with soft pink highlights, paying homage to Liberty’s timbered exterior. View the collection here.

The Merry and Bright Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
Designed in the London studio, the Merry and Bright collection from Liberty Fabrics is inspired by those special moments spent gathered around the Christmas tree, excitedly anticipating Christmas. The designs Bauble Bonanza and Shine Bright celebrate the ornamentation of beautiful tree decorations and flickering candle lights, whilst All Wrapped Up captures the excitement of preparing gifts for loved ones. Look out for a treasure trove of toys hidden within the tree in Magical Forest. Our classic Wiltshire Shadow in metallic gold and silver provides the perfect blender to compliment this collection – traditional colours of rich reds, jolly greens, and navy create the perfect winter palette for your sewing creations.

The Carnaby Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The latest quilting collection from Liberty Fabrics is inspired by the historic epicentre 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. View the collection here.

Flower Show Midsummer
Lasenby Quilting Cotton

Drawing inspiration from the glory and tradition of classic British flower shows, the collection features diverse flower forms united in a cacophony of colour, illustrating Liberty’s rich heritage of floral design. The Flower Show Midsummer collection takes us on a walk around a sunlit wildflower meadow, where light sky blues, sunshine yellows and bright pops of red and pink complement darker tones of rich greens and inky blues. The result is a bold and playful palette, guaranteed to bring any crafting project into full bloom. The collection is traditionally screen printed onto Lasenby cotton, a base specifically developed for quilting and craft projects. View the collection here.

The Artist's Home Collection
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The latest quilting collection from Liberty Fabrics is inspired by the wonder and escapism of the artist’s home – a reflection on eclecticism and colour, filled with vibrant details to spark inspiration. Our designers drew influence from historic creative retreats including Charleston Farmhouse, a romantic countryside escape famed for its hand-painted decorative interiors, as well as Yves Saint Laurent’s idyllic Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, and Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture studio and gardens on the dramatic Cornish coast. Traditionally screen printed onto soft Lasenby cotton, The Artist’s Home collection encompasses new painted artworks such as Sketchbook Bloom, Summer Sketch and Studio Stripe, complemented by designs revived from the Liberty archive and reimagined into exciting new colourways.
