In 1984, Mystic Valley Traders (MVT) founder Nancy Mills was captivated by woven woolens a neighbor had purchased on a trip to Wales. Welsh looms, still functioning after hundreds of years of use, were producing patterns that had been preserved as family traditions. MVT has been inspired to explore the market for "antique" Welsh coverlets and throws in this country.
As business grew, Nancy Mills remained attuned to customer style preferences. New products – including duvets, shams, and pillows – were introduced to enhance the Welsh woven coverlets and to create complete bedding ensembles. In 1990 MVT introduced its Collections at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, North Carolina.
Mystic Valley Traders was the first accessory manufacturer to exhibit in this "furniture only" arena. Pioneering a union with bedroom furniture manufacturers proved successful, and Mystic Valley Traders built their reputation as an outstanding resource to fine furniture retailers, catalog houses, and interior design professionals. Quick Ship’s were added to offer high-quality bed linens at great value and with immediate delivery.
Mystic Valley Traders is a leading and award-winning manufacturer of high-end, top-of-bed linens and home furnishings. The original wovens are replaced by beautiful fabric ensembles. Mystic Valley Traders' Quick Ship and Custom Collections feature diverse colors, patterns and textures in cotton prints, linens, silks, damasks, velvets, chenilles and tapestries, and they ship within one week and three weeks, respectively. Their US-based workroom of cutters, stitchers and finishers represents over 450 years of experience, allowing customers to fully customize any bedding ensemble quickly and with the finest craftsmanship.
In 2003 Mystic Valley Traders, was acquired by twin brothers, Kyle and Adam Tager. Together with creative director, Karen Tager, the brothers are designing new Collections and expanding product offerings within the luxury bedding category. MVT is “the company” to watch as the furnishings world seeks stories of success and even growth in a challenging economy.
The Tagers continue the Mystic Valley Traders reputation for excellence in design, quality and customer service, best exemplifying their motto, “How To Make A Bed.”
