Ferns – Vintage Patterns by Vera & Liberty of London

I seem to gravitate towards patterns with ferns. I love their graphic silhouette and their delicateness. And since moving to California I am surrounded by them: my studio window looks out onto a garden of lush ferns.

This lovely pink pattern is a vintage Liberty of London scarf. It is not your customary Liberty pattern which are often small ditzy florals. It has the feeling of a botanical print and it is unexpected in shades of pink rather than greens.

Designer Vera Neumann used ferns in many of her designs and artwork. It is an iconic subject for her. In thinking about fern patterns I realized that I have several pieces in my Vera collection with ferns. Here are a few.
