MANUFACTURER: Liberty Art Fabrics 

TAMSYN: Tamsyn was inspired by the peeling antiquity of the painted frescos of Bartolomeo Di Fruosino in fifteenth Century Florence. To create the aged layering of paints the design of this Liberty print was created using oil based inks onto paper using a roller.

ABOUT THE AUTUMN/WINTER 2015 SEASONAL COLLECTION: The Fifteenth Century: oils, frescos and illumination - Rich silks, linen and wool were the basic materials used for dress manufacture at this time. Plain dyed fabrics were popular, but during this period designers excelled in the use of all over patterns using stylised flowers, vines and geometric motifs. Larger all-over patterns were brocaded. Designs were inspired by garments in oil paintings, frescos and illuminated manuscripts from this era.


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.

SPECIAL RELEASES:  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.

We are in no way accountable for customs duty, handling fees or taxes that a Buyer may be required to pay upon delivery. We recommend that Buyers check with the appropriate authority in their country before they buy.
