Lovely lace

Lovely lace. Such a pretty fabric, and so versatile. One of our favourite brands in the Limited Edition store at Ocean Terminal is MYB Textiles.

MYB textiles lace oneAyrshire-based textile company, MYB Textiles creates the most beautiful and exquisite  and lovely lace and madras fabrics. Morton, Young and Borland Ltd was founded in 1900, one of the largest mills in the area creating beautiful lace and madras. Today MYB Textiles is the only producer in the world manufacturing patterned lace with the original Nottingham Lace Looms, which are over 90 years old.

Tradition and innovation are embraced by the company, and today many of those looms have been modified and are networked to the computers in the design office. MYB Textiles works with loads of fabulous designers who can’t get enough of their lovely lace.

“Judy R Clark, Iona Crawford, Minna Hepburn, Hobbs of London, Crikey Aphrodite, Mairi McDonald and Flossy & Dossy are just some of the names who buy our lace for their fashions and wedding dresses,” says Margo from MYB.

“And William Chambers, who uses our lace, and our roller-blind fabric in his wonderful hats.”

Glasgow-based milliner, Chambers, has used some lovely lace in his SS15 collection, as you can see from our images.

Lace. It has lasting appeal; dating way back to Queen Elizabeth 1, in the 16th Century, right up to Kate Middleton’s lace wedding dress in 2011. But it’s not just for Royals, is it. Lace is all-encompassing – one of those fashion fabrics that lends itself to almost everything, and also interiors.

One of the brands in the Limited Edition store are MYB Textiles who create the most beautiful and exquisite lace and madras fabrics in their Ayrshire mills.

Morton, Young and Borland Ltd was founded in 1900, one of the largest mills in the area creating beautiful lace and madras. MYB was founded as an exclusive manufacturer of what was known as Scottish Leno Gauze weave, later as Scottish Madras.

Madras became a generic term inspired by the product’s wide distribution throughout the city of Madras in India. The production of Nottingham Lace followed, and today MYB Textiles is the only producer in the world manufacturing patterned lace with the original Nottingham Lace Looms, which are over 90 years old.

Tradition and innovation are embraced by the company, and today many of those looms have been modified and are networked to the computers in the design office. The results are truly stunning.

Find MYB and their lovely fabrics in the Limited Edition store, until January 31.
