Liberty was founded 140 years ago, by Arthur Liberty, selling exotic silks imported from China and Japan, and cottons and fine wools from India.

His stock proved a hit with the artistic set, and early customers included Oscar Wilde, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ellen Terry, James McNeill Whistler and Frederick Leighton.

His window displays of “Liberty art colours”, a rainbow of woven and printed fabrics in colourfast dyes, became a tourist attraction.
