Past treasures, modern gems
Liberty has been associated with beautiful fabrics since 1875. Our collaboration with the brand began in 2016, taking iconic prints from the Liberty archive, updating and re-imagining them.
Liberty Fabrics and John Lewis
We’re launching new exclusive interpretations of four iconic Liberty archive prints, adding to our existing Liberty archive range. Playing with scale, colour and technique, our designers worked alongside the Liberty Design studio to re-work each of the four heritage motifs, chosen from the 43,000 or so in the centuries-old Liberty archive. You’ll find the re-imagined patterns on products across our Home departments, including soft furnishings, ready-made curtains, blinds, bed linen, tableware and accessories.
This gorgeous print is based on a Liberty peacock feather design from the early 1900s. Liberty started to produce their own patterns in the 1880s, and peacock feathers have featured in many Liberty fabrics ever since.
Lodden’s origins lie in one of the great Arts and Crafts textile designs, originally created by William Morris in 1884. Our re-interpretation is based on a design for a Liberty craft fabric from 1996, itself a re-scaled and re-coloured version of the William Morris original.
Caesar is an updated version of Liberty’s famous Peacock Feather print, re-worked from a design created in 2007 by Duncan Cheetham, at the Liberty studio. It’s the print we’ve used most across the new collection; versatile, graphic yet soft, it looks beautiful everywhere.
