As one of the best-known department stores in the UK, Liberty London offers a diverse range of products, but one of their staple products & absolute best sellers are their fabrics – specifically their cotton prints. Not surprising, then, is that the founder of Liberty London has his roots in fabric and Liberty has a great tradition and history spanning a period of over 80 years.
In the 1920s, Liberty began to produce miniature floral, paisley & abstract prints that became known as ‘Liberty Prints’ and the rest, as far as I am concerned, is history.
Englishman Arthur Lasenby Liberty began his career as an apprentice for a draper. He then took on a job at Farmer & Roger’s Great Shawl and Cloak Emporium – a position that set him on course of his life’s work. After ten years of work there, learning about textiles & other arts, he decided to branch out and open his own business in 1875, named ‘East India House’ where he solely sold Oriental imports – namely rugs, decorative objects and…fabrics!
In 1875 a small shop opened in Regent Street London called Liberty & Co. This was the dream of an Englishman Arthur Liberty, a man of great vision and artistic skills who until his death in 1917 played a leading part in the growth and achievements of a wonderful department store.
Arthur Liberty spent many years travelling to Eastern parts of the world gaining inspiration for the development of his store and he would bring home beautiful rugs and fabrics from these countries. He involved William Morris and other famous artists of the 19th century in the designing of rugs and materials. Some of these early designs are still used today.
The name Liberty of London is now synonymous with quality oriental rugs, furnishing and dress fabrics, jewellery and accessories, not to mention the famous and fascinating stores which house their products in Regent and Marlborough Streets.
Liberty has a history of collaborative projects – from William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti in the nineteenth century to Yves Saint Laurent and Dame Vivienne Westwood in the twentieth. Recent collaborations include brands such as Scott Henshall, Nike, Dr. Martens, Hello Kitty, Barbour, House of Hackney, Vans, Onia, Manolo Blahnik, Uniqlo, Superga, Drew Pritchard of Salvage Hunters and antique lighting specialist Fritz Fryer... see a large collection of Liberty Print Bold Beanies, unique stylish headwear for cancer patients, Chemo hair loss and Alopecia Areata for Ladies, men and kids online.
