New additions to BHETA

My Gifts Trade, Evo Lifestyle Products and the Orthex Group are the latest housewares brands to join BHETA.

My Gifts Trade started life in 1966 as Music Exchange with a retail store in Manchester.  A family-owned business, it has diversified and entered the home and giftware markets as My Gifts Trade.  Since 2014, it has built its homewares business, initially through close collaboration with leading UK designers such as Hinchcliffe and BarberSara Miller London and I Like Birds, and latterly via the exclusive UK distribution of selected high quality European brands, including Costa Nova and Gusta.

In 2018, My Gifts Trade acquired ECP Design with its wide base of loyal customers, strong supply chain and sourcing capabilities.  The company supplies leading high street retailers, independent gift stores, garden centres and ecommerce retail.  It now has a 1,200m² warehouse facility near Manchester.

Evo Lifestyle Products began as Trolley Bags UK. However, with the addition of several new names such as Scrub Daddy and Holster Brands, it evolved into Evo Lifestyle Products, a distributor of innovative homeware and lifestyle products. The South West based company supplies individual retailers, national chains, wholesalers and buying groups based all over the world.
