When Arthur Liberty first opened in 1875, his stock consisted solely 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 and damask silks from China and Japan. These were available in a huge range of shades and became known as ‘Liberty Art Colours’.
The Art Colours collection pays homage to Liberty Fabrics’ rich heritage and colour innovation. The offer ranges from contemporary corduroys, sumptuous cotton velvets, recycled tumbled linens, to beautiful bouclés, 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.
