Great Missenden Crepe de Chine
Our Great Missenden print is based on an archival paisley design dating from the 1980s, which in turn drew on elements from several mid-nineteenth century shawl patterns. Named after the Buckinghamshire village where our founder Arthur Liberty had his country home, it is a quintessential paisley complete with intricately flourishing frills and fronds.
Painstakingly printed by our textile experts in Italy, Liberty Fabrics textural 16 momme crepe de chine is one of the best silk bases for daytime wear – it’s effortlessly luxe, with a lightweight drape that’s made more durable by its matte, slightly rough surface. Try using crepe de chine to create a louche effect with wide-leg trousers and loosely tailored shirts, or with fluted sleeves and ruffled accents for a romantic feel.

For the first time, Liberty Fabrics has produced a range of our most beloved Classic designs on our favourite silk bases. Silk is woven into the history of Liberty – the original product sold when we opened our doors in 1875, it was prized for its incomparable lustrousness, colouring and tactility by an artistically-minded Victorian clientele. The Classic Silk Collection offers fresh versions of some of our most well-loved designs (including Art Nouveau, paisleys, landscapes and ditsy florals), reworked and recoloured for an opulent and yet utterly modern approach to iconic Liberty silks.
