Deco Paisley Tana Lawn™ Cotton
While creating this beautiful watercolour paisley, the Liberty design team drew inspiration from a group of swatches found in a 1920s French pattern book in the archive.
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.
“Creating a design based on such a small fragment was an ambitious task set by Anna. To me the fragments lent themselves to the beginnings of beautifully detailed, flowing paisley shapes – the medium of ink helped preserved the tonality visible in the original archive pieces.” – Ffion Griffith, Senior Designer

The Archivist’s Edit is curated by our legendary archivist Anna Buruma, the protector and custodian of Liberty’s design history for over 20 years. Encompassing 20 beautiful prints, the capsule collection shines a light into the more unusual and lesser-known corners of Liberty’s archive. Fragile fragments and half-forgotten artworks are regenerated into new designs by the in-house artists, drawing inspiration from Buruma’s favourite periods within the brand’s 145-year timeline as well as from across her own life and history.
