Cotton Balls Silk Satin
Cotton Balls is created by lightly sponged layers of gouache paint, lending the design an airy tumbling feeling. This medium-scale design pays homage to traditional screen-printed layers, with light and shade picked up through stencilled shapes and overlapping areas of colours.
The design is printed by experts in Italy onto our fluid, reflective 16 momme Belgravia silk satin – a fabric prized for its lustrous drape and fluidity, along with its luminously high-shine surface. Construct it into eveningwear pieces such as sheath gowns, or use it to create opulently wearable daytime designs like wrap dresses and flowing shirting.
“These soft, cloud-like cotton balls were stencilled to create a tint with a dusting of pastel colours, making them look good enough to eat. They evoke a feeling of nostalgia, like watching your mother take off her makeup.” – Shona Heath

Visionary set designer Shona Heath brings her fantastical touch to Liberty print, in a unique new collaboration created for the Liberty Fabrics Design Series. Inspired by Philip Ridley’s 1996 children’s book The Hooligan’s Shampoo, Heath constructed miniature sculptures in her studio from everyday corner shop objects – off-kilter scenes of rubber-band bows, flowers made from washing up sponges, and discarded banana skins were painted into beautiful artworks by the Liberty Fabrics team, appearing here in a parade of vibrant colours and textures.
