I bought my first metre of liberty lawn whilst on a school trip to London in the mid-eighties and it seemed like a very extravagant purchase. Today, when placing my much larger orders with Liberty it still feels like amazing treat.
Liberty began manufacturing Tana lawn in the 1920’s, taking its name from Lake Tana in Ethiopia where the raw cotton was grown. Liberty Tana Lawn is 100% cotton. It has a very fine thread count which gives it a luxuriously light, silky feel and although very fine it is extremely durable.
It is perfect for summer clothing and can be layered up with knitwear for winter.
I like to use a mixture of the seasonal prints that Liberty produces twice a year and the famous archive prints that have iconic status, influenced and designed by key figures of the Arts and Craft movement.
Choose Your Print...
Tinker & Belle designs can be made-up in your choice of Liberty print. Although I mostly work with my own selection of prints, I am very happy to consider a special request for a customer's own favourite Liberty pattern.
