History
Arthur Lasenby Liberty first opened the Liberty store on Regent Street in London on May 15, 1875, selling imported ornaments, textiles and artefacts from the East. Liberty’s wish was to influence the public’s taste by giving them the opportunity to buy beautiful and otherwise unattainable things.



Liberty Fabrics
Due the success of the imported fabrics, Liberty set up an in-house design studio to produce its own eclectic range of designs. Now Liberty Fabrics has been designing and printing fabrics for over 140 years. Internationally recognised as a leader in print design and textile innovation, the in-house design team continues to create new and original prints each season.

Design Studio
Based in Soho, London, the Liberty Design Studio creates a new collection of up to 40 original designs each season. Inspired by Art, Architecture, History, Music, Flora, Fauna. Each collection is themed and tells a unique story.

The Summer House Collection 
Lasenby Quilting Cotton
The latest collection from the Liberty Fabrics design studio drew inspiration from the interiors of 17th and 19th century orangeries. The Summer House quilting collection illustrates the grand architecture of these structures – paying homage to the details of decorative tiled flooring, iron works and trellises.
Archival artworks are translated into conversational prints inspired by citrus fruits, plants and vines weaving amongst detailed ironworks, while floral geometric designs evoke the forms of intricate tiles.
