We Believe

Our entire business is built on the premise that it is time to increase diversity, establish equity and bring more sustainable practices to gifting.

We've found that gifts are simply better when we bring underrepresented makers to the forefront and do away with the commonplace, single-use swag that ends up in landfills.

We are a woman-owned and operated studio, and DEI and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. We invite you to read more about our efforts here.

Our Story

I'm Maryn, founder of Sunroot. Our story begins with my two sisters -- they're the best thing about me. While I live on the East Coast, my twin is chasing her dream on the West Coast and my younger sister is doing the same in the Midwest.

When our paths first spread us across the country, I missed being there to celebrate their big moments and major wins, like their birthday or their move to a new city. As time went on, I began to miss being there for all the moments in between. I began searching for a way to celebrate their everyday human moments -- the moment when they crushed the presentation they were nervous about, or made it to Friday after an incredibly long week.

Over the past several years, I have sent them homemade care packages because I haven’t found anything that could encapsulate the fun-loving celebration I want to send their way. After three years in the eCommerce industry, I decided to start a company that makes just that: a way to celebrate our people -- for their once-in-a-lifetime moments, and all the human moments in between.

Sunroot was born out of a need to celebrate my people, and also a desire to celebrate independent makers and female-owned businesses. Each Sunroot purchase celebrates makers and entrepreneurs that are hustling between night shifts, corporate meetings and children's soccer games. We invite you to read more about our their stories here.

Our makers' incredible stories have combined with ours, and we've come together to create a new story -- one that I hope you will join us in.

I’ve always loved the challenge and the joy of finding the perfect gift for my people. I’m someone who shops for gifts year-round, searching for reasons to pop a little “just because” gift in the mail and stowing away my favorite finds from summer markets to be given over the Holidays.

I love it when I find a gift that leads to my person’s face lighting up, a gift where they understand the context right away and that they can’t wait to use.

My favorite part of this startup journey has been sourcing. Knowing that the best gifts need some context and an authentic sense of story, I’ve taken joy in not only touching and feeling (and tasting!) uniquely beautiful goods, but I’ve also taken great joy in learning the stories of the makers behind them – how they are hustling to follow their dreams and share their craft with the world.
