Hobonichi – Liberty Fabrics: Hollyhocks (Orange) | A6 Techo Cover

£55.00

This cover fits an A6 size Hobonichi Techo book. It has “butterfly-stopper” pen holders that use a pen to hold the cover shut. The textile is inspired by hollyhocks. The smudges and shades produced by the delicate brushstrokes of watercolour give this cover a fantastical feel.

About the Artist

Liberty Fabrics is a fabric brand from England. Founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty (1843-1917), who discovered the beauty of Japanese art during a World’s Fair in London in the 19th century.

The company originated as a small import shop with oriental ornaments and fabrics. The delicate silk and intricate hand-dyed art were praised by followers of the Aesthetic Movement, and in the 1880s, Liberty began printing high-quality cotton textiles as a way to recreate sturdy versions of the delicate Eastern silks.

In the 1920s, Liberty developed their original “Tana Lawn” cotton material, which looks and feels like silk and has a lightweight structure that allows it to drape beautifully. Liberty has created intricate prints bursting with colour and complex designs ever since.

This is a cover only and does not include the Techo book.
