Have you heard? After five years and more than 1,500 story launches, The Grommet is celebrating its fifth anniversary with Grommets beautifully crafted of wood and other rustic materials.
A couple of years ago, I started taking a liking towards coffee, the color teal, and coincidentally, the material wood. Coffee has definitely found its way into my mornings while I also noticed the uptick of teal in fashion and home decor. And when I noticed the return of wood as a choice material, I was pleasantly surprised.
For a while, it seemed like the world was only focused on new-age materials. But now, thereís a revival of appreciation for old things and traditional building elements. One of them is wood, and it just has a wonderful aesthetic to it. Things feel solid, look great, and with the right care, last long. At The Grommet, some of our American handcrafters and creators make beautiful Grommets using wood.
Our collection of wooden Grommets comes just in time for our wooden anniversary. Itís been five years of launching undiscovered products and helping them -- as well as the people and stories behind them -- succeed.
Here is a five-item roundup of some The Grommetís one-of-a-kind wooden products:
