  • New Liberty of London is at Britex Fabrics!

    March 10, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    Britex Fabric’s second floor is blooming with a new shipment of soft Liberty of London cotton lawn! Today my favorite is this one with grey and brown birch trees adorned with fantastical fleurs and paisley. As Nanki-Poo would say……
    “The flowers that bloom in the spring, Tra la,
    Breathe promise of merry sunshine —
    As we merrily dance and we sing, Tra la,
    We welcome the hope that they bring, Tra la,
    Of a summer of roses and wine, Of a summer of roses and wine.
    And that's what we mean when we say that a thing
    Is welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring. Tra la la la la, Tra la la la la,
    The flowers that bloom in the spring.”

    (From The Mikado and by the immortal Gilbert and Sullivan)

  • Liberty of London - Peacock Print

    March 26, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    A tiny tawny mouse whispered into my dozing ear that Britex Fabrics will be getting a new shipment of Liberty of London cotton lawn in the next week! Since 1875, Liberty has been synonymous with luxury and great design. In 1975 Liberty celebrated its centenary, which was heralded by a major exhibition at the esteemed Victoria and Albert Museum. Direct from England, Liberty is taking the U.S. by storm! I yearn for a standing collar fitted shirt, with wide French cuffs made of this spectacularly soft cotton fabric in a peacock feathered print.

    We love Liberty of London cotton lawn. Sew up a cowboy shirt for your favorite bucking bronco, a feather soft robe to lounge around in on Sunday mornings while eating French toast, or even a stack of the most luxurious handkerchiefs in the universe! Here are some of our selection of 45 bolts of Liberty of London cotton lawn.
