Tuscan Hills Expands Trade Biz with Second Line

Princeton, N.J. —Growing its budding business with interior designers, architects and decorators, upscale Italian linen source Tuscan Hills, LLC has unveiled its spring/summer 2006 collection in modern stripes, solids and sheers.

Building upon its debut collection more than six months ago, one-third of its sales now come from the design trade. In the company's newest line are about 12 designs spanning 400-count bedding, curtains, table linens and decorative pillows. Customers can choose from about 10 hues in the new palette, but custom-dye colors are also available. Linens are hand-finished and embellished with such details as hemstitches, embroideries and lace.

The new line has been edited down to convey a specific point of view that takes Old World artistry and portrays it in a contemporary way. “Busatti is a 163-year-old traditional linen manufacturer that maintains Old World colors, designs and techniques,” observed Tuscan Hills' co-owner and founder Greg Evans of its Italian textiles resource.

The company offers its clients the ability to bring hand-crafted Italian goods direct from small family-run manufacturers in Tuscany that still utilize centuries-old techniques. It is the exclusive U.S. distributor for most of the collections it carries, such as Busatti linens for kitchen, bedroom and bath, Caporali wrought-iron furniture, and other home accents.

Tuscan Hills will continue to launch two collections a year (spring/summer and fall/winter) to be more in-tune with the fashion houses.
