Liberty of London Tana Lawn fabrics
Liberty of London Tana Lawn™ cotton fabrics are built by obsession. They have been perfected into a modern masterpiece of production through a bespoke process that has evolved over a century.
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. It is cared for by skilled technicians who oversee the production of over 150 different designs a year.
Central to this story is the signature Liberty of London Tana Lawn™ fabrics, a famous masterpiece of fabric technology. Tana Lawn™ is fine, cool and durable with a silk-like feel and brilliant reproduction of Liberty’s lustrous prints. Made from specially selected ultra-fine long staple cotton, its bespoke process has been fine-tuned by Liberty Fabric experts over the last 100 years. Above all, Tana Lawn™ continue to be a process of continual improvement. In other words, it is a living, breathing thing that continually evolves as Liberty Fabrics refines its methods and works with new technologies.
In addition, the Liberty of London vast print archive is a national treasure, encompassing well over 45,000 designs and dating from the 1800s to the present day. Today’s in-house print designers draw from the breadth of designs to produce each new collection.
