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.
LEGS ELEVEN – Detailed fine line illustrations inspired by an extract discovered in Arthur Liberty’s journal ‘The Treasure hunt’. He describes ‘lovely saffron coloured coral insects’ during his trip on the Orient Express in 1909.
