COLLECTION: Seasonal - Spring/Summer 2017 - Castaway - divided into 4 different stories....
For Liberty Fabrics lovers of every sensibility, we have a fabulous treat in store. In time for Spring/Summer 2017, we’re debuting an entrancing collection of original prints which take cues from the tropical diversity of the Balearic Islands.
Introducing Castaway, a new series of fabrics inspired by imaginings and musings from the sun-soaked shores of desert islands. Travel on a voyage through time as traditional Liberty prints are reimagined in surrealistic and aquatic forms and expressive palettes, bringing an explosion of wonderful colour to our core archive.
Vibrant marine corals sway delicately in crystalline water, while floating fauna and drifts of ocean foam evoke the gardenia of the sea bed. In the depths of the ocean, shoals of multicoloured fish dart between reeds, while manta rays lie camouflaged between intricate marine flowers. Elsewhere, residents of the treetops emerge in an eclectic menagerie, while an exotic assortment of tropical blooms unfurl in brightly-hued glory. High in the sky above, spiralling planets orbit in majestic fashion, surrounded by glittering constellations.
Whether you’re in the mood for safekeeping, considered crafting, or for buying for the sheer pleasure of beautiful print, the Castaway collection is one to treasure for prosperity. Browse four new stories below, encompassing original prints on Tana Lawn and silk.
ISLAND CLASSIC PRINTS: TURTLE THIEF, IBIZA BERRY, ALOHA BETSY
Traditional Liberty print fabrics are reimagined in Island Classic as quaint floral blooms meet Ibiza berries, underwater creatures and spiralling shells in a fantastical pastiche. As creatures from the sea and shore merge their natural habitats, graphic shapes and pop-bright colours lift the surrealism into a humorous state of play.
ABOUT LIBERTY TANA LAWN:
Liberty Fabrics was established in London in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty and the carefully sourced highest quality cotton sourced from Lake Tana in Ethiopia became the foundation for Liberty Tana Lawn fabric. Handcarved woodcuts were originally used to apply print onto the Tana Lawn fabric. The ultra fine, but deceptively strong weave allows the fabric to take on the most intricate designs in the finest detail and most beautiful colours.
Liberty Tana Lawn's ultra-fine consistently even weave, has a silky feel that is often confused with silk, and its superior balance of body and drape makes it perfect for apparel, quilting, and many crafts.
CLASSICS: Designs often repeated for many years with changing colourways.
SEASONAL: Limited edition designs released in Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter each year. The Seasonal releases are based on various themes....such as 'Alice in Wonderland', 'The Silk Road' and 'Castaway'. Often these designs are never repeated, making them highly collectible.
CONTEMPORARY CLASSICS: Out of print Classics occasionally re-released as a special single-run limited edition in new colourways.
ONCE UPON A TIME - is a special release of designs grouped as a 'book' collective for children. For example....The Garden of Dreams - January 2016, and The Little Book of Rhyme - January 2017.

DISCLAIMER: One of the drawbacks of buying fabric online is that in spite of every effort made by the Seller to provide a photo that represents the true colour of the item, it is impossible to do so, as the colour appears differently on every computer screen. Therefore the item you receive may be a slightly different shade to what appears on your computer screen.
SHIPPING: No online postage calculator is sophisticated enough to accurately compute postage based on both fabric $ value and weight. You are always welcome to ask us for a postage quote for multiple purchases. Should our automated postage calculator charge you more than 'actual' postage after you have already paid, we will immediately credit the overage back to you.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING delivery times vary depending on the destination, Customs, and local postal service. Orders usually arrive in 10 -21 days although this can extend to 30+ days for Canadian deliveries. Peak period delivery times can delay delivery, especially in the lead up to Christmas.
