about the Grotto

Launched in 2019 and founded in Compton, CA, Gilded Grotto is an accessory and lifestyle brand that believes strongly in the magic of individuality and creative expression. We have a bit of an unorthodox approach when it comes to our design process, and the result is a fresh, unique, and ever evolving aesthetic.
