NEW IN STOCK - Liberty Althea McNish Tana Lawns
Althea McNish is one of the most important names in British textile design history. She was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1924, and in 1951 migrated to London. Her audacious use of colour and refined technical skills were spotted by Liberty chairman, Arthur Stewart-Liberty.
Liberty Fabrics have reissued a capsule collection of McNish’s original fabric designs, reinterpreted for the modern era, some of which are said to be inspired by childhood walks through swaying fields of wheat in a sugarcane plantation in Trinidad.
