The Liberty pattern

While the charm and elegance of the fabrics created by the Liberty House is no longer to be proved, the debate is now on the best manner to fit these floral and original prints to your outfit.

In order to avoid a misstep I strongly advise you to drop the total look and to adopt a balanced and harmonious outfit. The Liberty pattern is beautiful when it comes to accessorizing your outfit: belt, bow tie, tie, pocket squares, suspenders, ...

But before offering you some examples of styles, let's start with a little history ...

It was in 1875 that the globe-trotter and apprentice draper Arthur Lasenby Liberty opened a cloth shop on Regent Street in London.

Loving the colors and products from Asia, he decided to sell all kinds of goods from the East: Indian fabrics, Japanese fans, porcelain and Chinese silk ... However, his stock remained mostly made of fabric.



Then Arthur Lasenby Liberty came into contact with Thomas Wardle, a dyer and printer from Leek, who had once worked to give a new impetus to vegetal dyes. Those created by Wardle created for the silks imported from Liberty were immediately successful; They were nicknamed the "artistic colors of Liberty".

The success of the store was incredibly growing, so Liberty addressed the hottest designers to make new designs. These were woven or printed in Great Britain or France and were sold as "Liberty" patterns.

In the 1950s the contemporary style appeared; the psychedelic and colorful motifs of the 1960s gave way to the majestic ornaments of the following decade and the flowery furnishings of the 1980s and then to the monochrome drawings of the early 1990s.

The fabrics of the Liberty ties and bow ties proposed by the Haberdasher shop come from the original manufactory "Liberty Art Fabrics"!
