Liberty Fabrics has been at the cutting-edge of design and decorative arts since 1875 – through distinctive prints, unmatchable fabrics, and a commitment to honouring our heritage. The iconic fabrics are painted and drawn by hand by an in-house team in the heart of London, and printing takes place at our mill in northern Italy, which uses both innovative digital technology and age-old techniques. Many of today’s designs originate from the vast Liberty Fabric archive, which is a national treasure – encompassing 50,000 designs and dating from the 1800s to the present day. The designers redraw, rescale, and recolour archived designs to create modern takes on design classics.
We invite you to visit the Liberty Fabrics stand to discover more about Liberty Fabrics, their archive, and to learn what makes this design institution so special. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our designers, and explore brand new crafting collections – all printed on our soft Lasenby cotton base that has been developed specifically for quilting and crafting projects.
