Our near-neighbours at Genesis create high-quality furniture, garden products and gifts using hardwood timber brought in from sustainable forests.
Our immediate reaction when we were first shown round their workshop was: “they build things to last!” These are solid, very desirable items; British carpentry at its traditional finest; mortise and tenon jointing, all beautifully finished to create products that are a cut-above anything that we could ever source in bulk.
On top of this, Genesis is a social enterprise; a not-for-profit run by the Orwell Mencap charity, who use the business to train people with learning disabilities in the techniques and methods employed by their exceptionally skilled staff.
(We’ll stress, however, that we’d give the charity every support – but we stock their products absolutely on their own merits – they really do stand out for us.)
Have a look through our range of garden benches, patio furniture and bird/insect houses from Genesis – you’ll soon share our enthusiasm. They’ll also create bespoke products for you, including carving or personalisation – contact us to find out more!
