I'm a brand and I've seen my products on your site - what is Trouva?
Trouva is a technology platform empowering the best bricks and mortar boutiques to sell online, acting like their own website, but set in a community of other wonderful independents. Everything you see on Trouva purely reflects the products and prices you find in-store; and, as Trouva is a marketplace, when you buy via Trouva you are buying directly from, and supporting, these independent boutiques, when you're unable to visit in-person
