Tiny Box Company is the UK’s largest online gift packaging eCommerce company. It has over 700 products and over 120,000 customers, ranging from one-person start-ups to international corporations.
Rachel Watkyn founded Tiny Box Company in 2007, after she was unable to find any suitable recyclable packaging for her fair-trade jewellery and accessories line.
A year later, she appeared on popular BBC show Dragons’ Den, walking away with backing from 2 investors and a massive vote of confidence in her business idea.
DIT helped Tiny Box with advice on:
- EU VAT changes and moving goods into the EU
- exporting to ASEAN countries
- eCommerce marketplace onboarding
Since then, Tiny Box has grown to become one of the UK’s largest online gift packaging eCommerce companies. It provides over 700+ products to more than 100,000 customers, with a mix of clients on its books, from one-person startups to multinational organisations.
With ongoing help from DIT International Trade Adviser Estelle Dingley, the business has continued its international expansion.
