Phil and Michelle took a giant leap of faith, leaving their corporate roles and started DARLIN (Aust) - Your Wholesaler with Heart. The tagline says it all and this, along with other ethical and positive life values, has carried this family business through to where it is today. We are incredibly proud of our products, and the way that those products have created relationships.

OUR STORY

WORDS FROM OUR COMMUNITY

Good quality at
good prices.

At DARLIN, our group experiences good quality at good prices. DARLIN has been the supplier of timber boards, plates and bowls to the Seagrass Group of restaurants since early 2012. The products stand the test of high volume use and provide a cost saving to the business that ceramic servingware does not as timber doesn’t break or chip easily.

Orders have always
been quickly
delivered.

We have been proud to stock DARLIN in our store since we opened. The unique and quality product has been well received by our customers and our orders have always been quickly delivered with no problems. Michelle and her team have always been most helpful and our experience has always been 5 star.

Owner, My Summerland Home

Michelle, Phil and the entire team at DARLIN are a pleasure to work with. They source quality products and provide a fantastic service from ordering through to fulfilment. Nothing is ever too much trouble.

    Shipping + Price Increases + COVID
    Posted: January 24, 2022

    As you would know by now, all wholesalers/importers are experiencing huge issues with the costs and delays of shipping from overseas.   Many countries we import from are in and out of COVID lockdowns or being impacted by workers who are infected and unable to work. Unfortunately, this impacts us on the timely arrival of shipments and ever increasing costs impacting our margins.

    Unlike other wholesalers, we are holding our prices till July, 2022 and then we have no option but to increase our pricing.

    Should you have any queries about your order, please do not hesitate to contact DARLIN HO on 07 3205 7007.   

    We are very grateful for your understanding and patience.

    Virtual Showroom Tour
    Posted: January 24, 2022

    It continues to be interesting times - bushfires, COVID, floods....We are doing our best to make buying easier for you!  Not only have we given our website an update, we have also joined Field Folio and recently exhibited at the AGHA Sydney Trade Fair.  But did you know we have a fantastic showroom at our Brisbane warehouse that is bursting with samples and looking fabulous?

    In the past Trade Fairs have made it easy to connect to customers and showcase our beautiful products but of course no everyone has been able to travel.  We have had to rethink how we show you our products well merchandised and represented the way you would be able to easily replicate in your stores.

    Our showroom is perfect for this!  In the past only the lucky customers local to our warehouse have had the privilege of experiencing our showroom and seeing the products first hand, but now you can too!  Luckily, we live in the age of technology that allows us to connect even when
