Soapsuds Silk Organza
Soapsuds was reworked from a Liberty archive design, depicting balloon-shaped bubbles in an all-over layout. This fun, medium-scale conversational design features pastel shades mixed with vibrant brights, to make the colours pop.
The design is printed by experts in Italy onto our silk organza – a light, transparent and delicate silk fabric with a typically dry and soft hand feel, suitable for both everyday and high-impact statement wear. Use silk organza to add drama to multi-layered dress or blouse styles, or utilise it alone to create ultra-light scarves and accessories. Seam slippage value of this fabric is low, due to the nature of the construction.
“A design which bubbled up from the Liberty archive, these bubble shapes were reworked and recoloured to look like balloons escaping in the sky.” – 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.
