Tong Garden Centre welcomes exclusive furniture supplier

by | Jun 28, 2021 | Independents, News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

A Halifax-based business has made bespoke solid wood planters and a companion bench exclusively for Tong Garden Centre in Bradford. Off the Grain, founded by former PE teacher Dom Walsh, has created handcrafter wooden products exclusively for the garden centre, which is its first listing.

Dom Walsh says: “In November 2018, I left behind my full-time teaching career to turn my passion into a full-time business with a purpose. Off the Grain was born out of a desire to create beautiful, handcrafted furniture that is unique, full of character, made to order and built to last.

“The business has grown organically based on web based sales and word of mouth, but we’re excited to take Off the Grain to the next level with space in Tong, our first retail outlet, so that people can see the quality of our work first hand.”

Tong’s sundries buyer, Phil Hemmings is pleased to welcome the new supplier to Tong: “We love to showcase great local producers and Off the Grain caught our eye after a visit to their workshop where we were impressed by the team’s care and attention to their craft and ethical approach to product sourcing and sustainability.

“It’s good to be able to offer our customers something hand crafted, unique and custom made in Yorkshire.”

In addition to the planters and companion bench, Off the Grain’s handcrafted oak table and bench sets will be on display for bespoke customer orders.
