Liberty Love


Kinnear – True Up’s official favorite

Nicole alerted me to La Plus Belle Collection de Tissues Liberty, or “the most beautiful collection of Liberty Fabric” blog. Every. Single. Liberty. Fabric. Ever. Well I don’t know if it’s every one ever, but it’s a very good representation.


Satin de Soie Mauve

The site is also a shop; most of the Liberty Tana Lawn is 28€/m, which is a painful 43 American dollars. And other fabric types go up from there. I am working on a post of Liberty sources for poor Americans, so if you have anything to put on the list please let me know.

Tissus. OK, that’s French for “fabric” … now I’ve got tecidos in Portuguese, tela in Spanish … what other languages do you True Up readers know? Help me compile my multilingual fabric word list!

Thanks Nicole!

    It’s ‘tkanina’ in Polish

  2. melanie says:

    Singular in french is ’tissu’, without the ‘s’. You would had the ‘s’ if you had different kind of fabrics. Du tissu, des tissus…

  3. Heather says:

    In Italian it’s “tessuto”.

  4. Tricia says:

    It’s tkan’ in Russian, kangas in Estonian, and (I’m pretty sure) kanga in Finnish.

    There’s three more!

    Waechter’s Silk Shop, in lovely Asheville NC, sells some Liberty prints. I half wish I’d splurged the last time I went on vacation, but … that’s okay. (And Tricia stole my russian thunder!)

  6. Donna says:

    It’s nuno in Japanese.

    Liberty prints are my newest fabric to covet, but I’m afraid that would be quite a splurge for me! I keep hoping maybe, just maybe I’ll run across some at a garage sale or something…

    My pleasure Kim, you’re doing an awesome job here, just loving TrueUp. How COOL is that Liberty blog! Drooling…

    I think it’s Stoff in German, kinda like “stuff” in English… oh, and you need the initial capital letter, all German nouns have them;)

  9. Liz says:

    For Liberty buying in the US– sells has a good selection for $32 a yard and I’ve had some great deals on ebay through a seller called katsfabrics. I just can’t say no to Liberty, especially now that it’s summer!

    Kim, I LOVE LOVE this site. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I was going to share the same site as Liz. I found it through this post.
    She has amazing vintage and new collections of fabric and everything, but seems to have done some Liberty research so may be a good person to ask.
    Thanks again for this site, it is truly a treasure! Love Stacy

    I love the idea of the Liberty Sources for Poor Americans post…I wonder if that happened? I’m going to search, but I’ll admit I’m not the best internet searcher…
