Liberty of London has been delighting the world with stunning fabrics for over 140 years. Known for their exquisite designs from very talented artists. And who knew they worked so beautifully with leather and paper! An ideal choice for creating my new range.

Hidden treasures await to be explored within the covers of beautiful brown leathers. The fabrics will be available for a limited time only and will continually change. Just add your preferred fabric to the shopping cart when you order your journal. 

Please note that not all fabric and leather combinations have been photographed but I will add them as they become available. Larger images of fabric designs are shown in the product photos. Choose from the following current designs:

Elderberry Peach

'Elderberry print is an intricate symphony of tiny wildflowers, reflecting the complex microcosm of a summer’s meadow.' I chose it for it's beautiful colours that work well with the brown leathers.

Peach Porter

'With their round and succulent forms, peaches and pears have a sensuous appeal that delighted Art Nouveau designers. Peach Porter print is simple and classic, adorned with symmetrical globes of elegant fruit.' And to me it is very reminiscent of the wonderful work of William Morris. And there's a frog hidden in the design... can you see it!

Rose Xantha

From their Alice in Wonderland collection: 'Rose Xanthe Liberty fabric is inspired by painting the roses red in the Queen of Heart's garden. The rose is based on Rosa Xanthia who was living in the garden when her friends were changed by hand from white to red.'

"Would you tell me please, " said Alice, a little timidly, "why you are painting those roses? " – Lewis Carroll

And I loved the beautiful pink colour combination.  This works particularly well with my purple leather - wonderful combination. 

Leathers

Choose a colour from the beautiful range of quality genuine cowhide leathers. These leathers are chosen for their soft and supple feel as well as their deep rich colours and patterns.
