The company Morton Young and Borland Ltd was founded in 1900 in Ayrshire, Scotland, exclusively manufacturing Scottish Leno Gauze weave, later known as Scottish Madras. Soon after, in 1913, the company invested in Nottingham Lace Looms to offer a larger variety of products to its clients and to bring Lace making to Scotland. It has been manufacturing these 2 products ever since.
Over the years MYB has invested heavily in developing and modernising the production techniques involved in creating Scottish Lace and Madras. This innovation and development of technology combined with an archive of over 50,000 original drawings give MYB its unique position. The vast archive means that the design team can source period specific designs from the last 120 years. Morton Young and Borland and more recently MYB Textiles has built its reputation on the specialist skills and traditions prevalent in its products, and thus attracts discerning clients from across the globe.
