Himuro Sky Tana Lawn™ Cotton
Using scans from artist Yuri Himuro’s highly textured jacquard fabric designs, this charming conversational print depicts soaring objects such as aeroplanes, umbrellas and flying fish. A strong vehicle for colour, the design showcases the textures of the exquisite thread-snipping technique for which the artist is renowned.
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 first thing I do when looking at historic woven textiles is to turn them over to see the original colours on the back – they’re not faded by light exposure and can be unexpectedly vibrant, often with an abstract quality. I like how Yuri Himuro has removed parts of the weave and introduced figurative elements to an abstract design.” – Anna Buruma, Head Archivist

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. Textile designer Yuri Himuro creates collections that explore the unique and often surprising results that occur from interactions between people and textiles. Specialising in jacquard weaving and cutting, Himuro often snips away the surface section of the threads to create new and unexpected colours and shapes.
