Tetsuya Tana Lawn™ Cotton
This print originated as a carefully orchestrated photograph by Tetsuya Niikura, created in collaboration with floral artist Masaaki Kawaguchi. Movement and light are cleverly evoked among surreal-looking florals, interpreted into an Art Nouveau layout of elegantly mirrored and entwined motifs.
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.
“Tetsuya Niikura’s photographs capture nature’s surreal beauty. This design reflects Liberty’s history with Art Nouveau in its arrangement of elegantly mirrored and entwined motifs.” – Mary-Ann Dunkley, Design Director

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. Photographer Tetsuya Niikura studied oil painting before moving behind the camera – his still life works retain a hauntingly painterly quality. For these designs, he collaborated with the well-known flower artist Masaaki Kawaguchi.
