Cottage brands have taken root in all corners of the U.S. and world. They’ve sprung up in basements, buses, spare bedrooms …. and of course garages! Growing from humble beginnings, some now inhabit larger workshops and warehouse spaces.
But no matter where people’s craft takes place, cottage outdoor brands are united in their commitment to producing quality products and taking care of their customers.
It’s no secret that here at Garage Grown Gear we’re all about elevating cottage brands. But it’s one thing to say it and another thing to really internalize what that means for people’s livelihoods and in turn lives.
We hope this epic photo tour through the workshops of a couple dozen small, cottage brands leaves you feeling downright inspired — as it did for us!
