Mitsi C Tana Lawn from the Liberty Art Fabrics collection. This design was re-created from a design in the Liberty Archive by the Liberty Fabric design studio for autumn 2008 season. It plays on Liberty’s history with its Japanese style cherry blossom. The original was designed a member of Liberty’s studio in the 1950s. It was then recoloured to go into the 2011 Classic Tana Lawn Collection.
