Liberty Fabrics was established in London in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty. The carefully sourced cotton from Lake Tana in Ethiopia became the foundation for Liberty Tana Lawn, displaying fantastic patterns from hand carved woodcuts with a palette of breathtaking colour.
Today Liberty of London’s uncompromising quality continues to produce this iconic fabric which achieves a soft, silky feel due to its ultra-fine weave and wonderfully
sublime balance of body and drape. Tana Lawn has the versatility for any project you turn your creative mind to.
The Strawberry Thief borrows its name from the 1883 print design, for Liberty of London, by the notable William Morris, a prominent member of the arts and craft movement.
The Strawberry Thief is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest online retailer and wholesaler of Liberty Tana Lawn to the quilt and craft industry, distributing from Fremantle, Western Australia.
