LIBERTY OF LONDON FABRIC : THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PRINTED FABRIC
The Liberty brand comes from the name of its creator, Arthur Lasenby Liberty who opened the Liberty of London fabric store on Regent Street in 1875, a store that still exists today in London. In 1884, Arthur Liberty developed a fine and delicate cotton fabric with subtle floral motifs: the Liberty® brand was born. In France, the Liberty is popularized by the Cacharel brand, which updates it with its famous blouses from the end of the 1960s. The term "liberty" today misuse most floral prints but connoisseurs are not mistaken. Firefly and Co. make his models with the Liberty cotton batistes called "Tana Lawn", after Lake Tana in Sudan, where comes the variety of cotton used to make the fabric. Fabrics are printed in England, France or Italy.
