Chintz refers to the hand-painted cotton fabrics imported from India in the 17th and 18th centuries, which were hugely influential on design in Europe – Floral Chintz is inspired by an early example of Liberty’s chintz furnishing fabrics, reworked to contemporary effect in the London design studio.
“Liberty’s early days as an importer of goods from Asia means that we have a long history of selling the beautiful Indian chintzes that had been coming to Europe from the late 17th century onwards.” – Anna Buruma, Head Archivist
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.
