Liberty Tana Lawn

Since I was a little girl I have been dragged around countless fabric shops by my mother, since then have learnt a thing or two about different materials, their qualities and how they should be cared for.  So here is some extra information about the beautiful cloths I use to make your bespoke outfits.

​Liberty is a quintessentially British luxury brand their cotton lawns are the finest around.

Arthur Lasenby Liberty first began creating  Tana lawn in the 1920’s, which is named after Lake Tana in Ethiopia where cotton was and still is grow.   Tana lawn has an extremely high thread count which means has a very smooth almost silky feel.  It is 100% lightweight cotton, and is somewhat crease resistant, equally perfect for summer or for laying underneath a cardigan in winter.

Liberty is  known for their prints, most of their iconic designs were created in the 1920's by the mysterious DS who inscribed his initials on pieces such as Betsy and Wiltshire Berry.   Liberty also worked closely with William Morris who had a factory next to his, so much of the well loved prints such as The Strawberry Thief and Lodden are his.

Bi yearly new Art prints are developed and released, sometimes I might pick on of these prints, but mostly I stick with the classics

If you are interested in a particular liberty print which isn't part of my repertoire please contact me and i can usually create a  bespoke order
