The Botanical Atlas fabric collection reimagines the natural world for interiors. Combining the renowned Liberty colour palette with rich layered embroideries, opulent textured weaves, and contemporary printed velvets and linens, Botanical Atlas invites us on a journey across the globe. With reference to Sir Arthur Liberty’s expeditions during the 1880s-1910s, this collection explores a captivating array of flora and fauna. From trailing Chinoiserie motifs, to miniature Persian Garden illustrations, the Liberty Botanical Atlas fabric collection seamlessly intertwines the charm of traditional techniques with modern accents.
Created in parallel to the Botanical Atlas wallpaper collection, this series also incorporates innovative, unseen artworks, and beloved archive pieces reworked into new striking scales. Influenced by Liberty’s five colour stories: Lacquer, Jade, Lapis, Pewter, and Lichen, Botanical Atlas is a fascinating collection of visually exquisite botanic narratives.
Meticulously hand-painted in the Liberty Design Studio, in the heart of London, and expertly crafted using traditional and cutting-edge techniques in Italy, Belgium, and India.
Taken from an antique Tree of Life design within the Liberty archive, Palampore Embroidery has historically appeared as a best-selling scarf design. For this collection, the Liberty Design Studio have lovingly reworked the original artwork into a simpler composition to enhance the striking floral motifs. Embroidered in India by master craftsmen, the design has been imagined into three colourways. With subtle mineral-like lustre and tonal richness, these colour stories are reminiscent of the exquisite plant and insect dyes that originally inspired the design. Suitable for drapery, cushions, and accessories. (Chalfont)
