For many years Clipsshop has done an amazing job of avoiding price rises. However with an approximate 75% increase in the price of copper (the main raw material in the brass used in grommets) in the last 12months they have had to pass some of this increase onto us. On average there has been a 35% increase in the cost of grommets and although this is regrettable, I am sure that you can understand it is unavoidable.
