Description from the Liberty website:
'Paradise Garden is a bold, bright Oriental-inspired print that recalls Liberty’s roots as a treasure trove of Eastern-imported goods.''
'Striking a chord with the early years of Liberty history (when merchant adventurer Arthur Liberty made the emporium famous for Eastern fabrics and art) Paradise Garden is a beautiful, lucid tropical garden canopy with a distinctly Oriental feel. Fans of innovative detail will love the birds in Paradise Garden, each drawn from geometric shapes, a technique popular in traditional Indonesian art.'
