About Us

Although the NW Cru is new, we are bringing our 14 plus years of service from NW Food & Gifts to a more personal and social place to gather. We realized that people loved to come in , talk, grow and build lasting relationships within the community at NW Food & Gifts. That realization gave way to a vision of growth, education and community, inspired us to open the NW Cru. 

Cru~translates to “growth.” More precisely, it references a great or superior growing site or vineyard, a concept linked to the French notion of terroir. Soil, climate, altitude, aspect and the right variety create a synergy recognized as a cru.

Inspired From Our Customers

Real Feedback From Real People

Like the products since the first try and now I’m a loyal customer. The material for the chairs here is safe for my skin, and no longer do I need to worry about my child’s sensitive skin



Great service and quick delivery! Got my table just after 3 days of order, and the sustainability is a plus point. What a highlight for my dining room. Thank you for your service



Not really sure if the product meets my needs at first, but after seeing this brand’s bedroom in my friend’s house, I have no other doubts and need to buy myself one at once.
