Print Spotlight: Betsy Candy Floss
There is no denying that recolouring some of Liberty's most iconic and cherished prints is a privilege. World-renowned for its historic 50,000-strong print archive and in-house studio, Liberty Fabrics is a much-revered design institution. Therefore, for Coco & Wolf to be trusted by the Liberty team to create exclusive iterations which are sympathetic to the original designs which reflect Liberty's stories heritage and century-spanning passion for art and design is a real pinch-me moment. Not only that, but our customers being as excited and inspired by the refreshed colourways as we are adds further excitement to the collaborative relationship.
While Coco & Wolf has revisited many designs over the last few years, our exclusive Betsy Candy Floss is the one which has truly stolen everybody's heart. We've yet to meet anyone who doesn't love Betsy and this colourway gives this classic print a charming, fun update.

One of the most beloved Liberty designs of all time, Betsy is a small stylised floral, created in 1933 by the artist known only as D.S., who was also behind many other classic Liberty prints. The Liberty Fabric Classic Collection was established in 1979, created to champion the most well-known and iconic designs from the Liberty Archive all year round. Betsy joined the collection in 1982, cementing its position as one of Liberty’s heritage designs. Since Betsy’s inception, it has gone on to inspire other print developments, including Betsy Ann and Betsy Boo.
