Primrose Path Vintage Velvet
Primrose Path is a versatile and nostalgic floral, reminiscent of spring meadows in full bloom. Based on an archive design from 1935, this charming botanical epitomises the classic Liberty print style – for The Hooligan’s Shampoo collection, it has been recoloured into bold, unpredictable colour combinations.
The design is expertly printed in Italy onto our Vintage Velvet – a beautiful heavyweight base enjoyed for its luxurious feel and vibrant colour. Originally devised as a furnishing fabric for upholstery and heavy drapery, Vintage Velvet can also be used for strikingly high-impact garment design – use it to create thick jackets or ultra-structured dresses.
“This 1930s archive print threw itself at our feet and begged to be lovingly recoloured. New colourways make these pretty primroses an instant classic.” – 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.
