Cotton Balls Denim
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 onto our Harvard Denim, a heavy cotton stretch fabric prized for its strength and high-spec technical performance. With its typical drill structure and hardwearing construction, this fabric is perfect for heavier garment pieces. Use it to create boxy jackets with matching jeans, or a multi-pocketed workman’s coat.
“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.
