Liberty Fabrics presents “Aesthetic Renaissance”, a collection celebrating the story of our founder, Arthur Lasenby Liberty. We embrace his spirit as traveler, tastemaker and English gentleman sharing stories and anecdotes from the archive and the Liberty legend he created. As one of the original merchant adventurers, Arthur introduced exotic textiles and artefacts from around the world and Liberty became central to the development of the aesthetic movement in the late 1800s. The collection is framed by designs drawn from the English countryside that Arthur escaped to when he left the buzz of is London city store.
IMARI – This conversational design is inspired By Arthur and his wife, Emma’s honey moon in Paris. They bought a Chinese vase which, on their return to London was sold in the Liberty store and more than paid for their trip. Drawn with pencil and pen, with an ink textured background referencing the detail on the ceramics.
