The Grommet is a web-based gift shop that promotes ethical shopping practices while spotlighting independent artisans. The e-retailer's Meet the Makers profiles let its website visitors follow the creative process behind specific products while supporting independent brands who pride themselves on quality and craftsmanship.

Giving independent makers an entrepreneurial platform, The Grommet boasts a similar concept to marketplaces like eBay and Etsy but goes one step further to profile the independent brands and creative individuals that make its products possible.

This unique web shop embraces a peer-to-peer shopping strategy, meaning that artisans will gain promotion with each purchase made. In addition to tech, home decor and beauty products, this web-based gift shop also carries a variety of other goods that are handmade and ethically sourced.
