Bouncing Ball Tana Lawn™ Cotton
Appearing textural at first glance, this design is composed of carefully considered overlapping placements of a charming motif drawn by the artist Noritake. A small figure can be seen draped over a ball, which rotates (seemingly endlessly) to create a multi-directional design. Drawn with a bold outline in pen and ink, we added colour into the artist’s highly revered simple, monotone style – allowing the design to still be traditionally printed.
Our Tana Lawn™ cotton is a fabric built by obsession, perfected into a modern masterpiece of production through a bespoke process that has evolved over a century. Printed in our very own Liberty Printing Mill, located between Milan and Lake Como in northern Italy, Tana realises unmatchable fluidity with a silk-like touch, unique print quality and striking colour vibrancy. Machine washable and durable enough for daily wear, it can be used to create everything from simple separates to spectacular statement pieces.
“The graphic nature and carefully considered creation of Noritake’s line drawings have a playful quality which never fails to bring a smile.” – Ffion Griffith, Senior Designer

From Japan With Love was created by Liberty Fabrics in collaboration with eight contemporary Japanese artists. The collection’s contributors worked across a wide range of graphic, textile and fine art mediums, creating visually stunning artworks that were transformed into fabric layouts by our in-house London design team – each finished print reflects a different influential facet of Japanese art and design. Noritake’s charming and considered designs can be found adorning phone cases, socks and baseball caps, as well as in advertisements and fashion publications across the internet and in print – in Tokyo, you’re particularly likely to walk past his distinctive illustrations on a regular basis.
