Brief history of the Liberty store
The Liberty store was founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty who came up with the idea of selling items from the British Empire (silks, Japanese porcelain).
In 1874, Liberty created a cotton fabric with a silky feel and floral motifs: the Liberty fabric was born!
As for the store that we know today with its Tudor facade, it was built in 1924 from wood from schooners of the Royal Navy.
