Tumandok Crafts Industries of Negros Occidental, Philippines celebrated 27 years of producing world-class quality home décor and furniture. Headed by owner Josephine Locsin, they marked the event with a worship celebration and a 3-day exhibit at the Ayala Malls Capitol Central in Bacolod City.

Tumandok Crafts Industries: 27 Years in the Business

This milestone anniversary of Tumandok Crafts Industries was celebrated to honor God, especially for His grace, mercy, and favor.

While all businesses have their share of ups and downs, including market crashes, inflation, and exchange rates, Tumandok Crafts had an extra hurdle. Their humble factory was razed by fire and everything Ms. Locsin and her staff have worked hard for literally became a pile of ashes.

Nevertheless, with much faith in God, their perseverance, as well as the commitment of her staff, they pulled through. Now, Tumandok Crafts continues to market its export-quality home decor, housewares, lighting fixtures, and furniture all over the country and abroad.

Mr. Serlu “Bong” Castro, Incoming Project Development Officer 1 of Bago City, said, “We are proud to bring Tumandok with (our exhibit) because they are world-class.”

Meanwhile, Ms. Lynna Joy Cardinal, DTI Provincial Director of Negros Occidental, said “You are a gift to Negros Occidental, especially to those whose livelihood depends on you.” She added that Tumandok Crafts’ design aesthetic is also an inspiration to aspiring designers.

Honoring Employees

Tumandok Crafts Industries has a rather small but dedicated workforce. Willie Layos was the first one Ms. Locsin trained at their small cottage startup.

Next is Dennis Garcia from the lamination department, who has stayed with Tumandok Crafts for 25 years now. Many of them have started working here and have stayed for two decades — proof of their dedication to the company.

At present, Tumandok workers now have an association called the Negros Trashure Crafts Workers Association. Their main work is to crush glass, which will be the main part of their glass decors.

Note: Some of their products will be on display at the Bago City LGU Pavilion at the Panaad sa Negros Festival 2024, from April 15 to 21, 2024.
