When Liberty first opened its doors in 1875, Sir Arthur Lasenby Liberty’s stock largely consisted of coloured plain silks from the East. Initially importing soft wools from Kashmir, transparent gauzes and fine light cottons from India, together with plain woven damask silks from China and Japan. These fabrics were available in a huge range of shades and became known as ‘Liberty Art Colours’.
Paying homage to Liberty’s rich heritage and history of colour innovation, Liberty Fabrics has reimagined Art Colours in a contemporary plains fabric collection for Interiors. In this collection, Liberty heroes a love of colour, pairing surprisingly vibrant archive hues with colours inspired by plants, minerals, and birds from around the world. Botanical greens of Artichoke, Kelp, Fern, Moss, and Nettle are offset against vibrant Yarrow & Orpiment. Rare specimens of Lapis and Quartz are paired with dusty Smalt Blue, Spinel, vibrant Flax Flower, and Wax Wing blue. Rich jewel tones of Tourmaline, Jadeite, Beetle and Scarab, are offset by earthy tones of Red Lac, Amaranth, and lacquer. These sophisticated palettes offer an extensive range of deep classic hues, luxurious vibrant colour, and vital shades in between.
The Art Colours collection presents a palette of 110 fabrics split across two books, exploring rich plush textures and dry linen mix fabrics. From contemporary corduroys, sumptuous cotton velvets, recycled tumbled linens, to beautiful bouclés, the collection is expertly woven and dyed in Italy and India. Art Colours is the perfect complement to the curated colour palettes in Liberty’s wallpaper and patterned fabrics collections, providing beautiful co-ordinating looks in any scheme.
