Be Rooted Joins Forces with PopSockets for a Limited-Edition Collection of Empowering Zodiac Phone Accessories\nAhh, I am so excited to share that we have teamed up with tech giant PopSockets. Mobile accessories is a category that I have wanted to break into for a while, but it is one that, as a small business, is so hard to navigate. Instead of going at it alone, I reached out to PopSockets to see if they would be a partner, and to my excitement, they said YES! Last year, we launched our Written in the Stars zodiac collection and I thought this would be the perfect collection to have on grips. It is the perfect combination of self-expression and representation. I am so excited to see all of you out in the world upgrading your phone with our grips. I hope you love them as much as I do.\n \nxo\nJasmin Foster\nFounder of Be Rooted\n\n\n \n \n \n \nPress Release:\nBe Rooted, the leading stationery and gifting brand, is joining forces with PopSockets LLC, the industry leader in tech accessories, to launch a limited-edition collection of 12 zodiac inspired phone case grips that aim to celebrate women of color and personal expression ahead of Black History Month.
