Introducing Liberty Champions
The Liberty Champions Capsule Collection celebrates the thrills, spills and epic highs of competitive sports – with artworks inspired by the archive, alongside brand new prints drawn and painted in the Liberty Fabrics design studio. The collection pays homage to the Sports Day events that were once held for the Liberty community by our founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty on the grounds of his Lee Manor country estate in Buckinghamshire. The design team searched the archive to discover accounts and photographs of these fun-filled sports competitions, translating their findings into colourful new designs brimming with vitality and movement.
Gymnasium – a quirky conversational design of practising acrobats and gymnasts, all competing in their various athletic events; parallel bars, still rings, balance beams, vaults and weightlifting. This simple and illustrative line drawn print was recreated from a 1970s Liberty design.

Please note: We tear our Liberty to achieve a line that follows the grain of the fabric - fabric edges may reflect this process.
