Headquartered In New Hampshire
We started Hidden Collective to change the way outdoor goods are discovered and sold. Our marketplace was created to give choice back to the consumer and a voice to the thousands of talented makers that exist throughout this world that you won’t find in large retail stores. More importantly, we want Hidden Collective customers to build a connection with the products that they buy – to learn the story behind how they were created and to be empowered to choose to support a maker based on what that maker stands for.
We believe in the outdoors. We believe in choice. Thank you for supporting Hidden Collective.
Hidden Collective connects our community of outdoor enthusiasts with the skilled craftsmen that are creating small-batch, one-of-a-kind outdoor goods. Most importantly, Hidden Collective shares their story with you. Who they are and what makes them unique. We hope that their stories inspire you and that their crafted goods become part of you and your experience.
THE BIRTH OF AN IDEA
Hidden Collective was born in a 1973 Dodge Broughman RV that my brother & I bought after I graduated high school. We loaded the RV with our climbing and camping gear, bikes, surfboards, and snowboards and set out on a journey to discover the places where these tools were meant to be used.
Over the next 11 years, we explored so many incredible places and found amazing people. They became our friends and family and we built a community built upon a shared set of values - a passion for community, trust, discovery, and for giving the small guy a voice. As our community grew, I found myself drawn to local craftsmen making their own gear. Some were simply making things for themselves while others were small local businesses crafting products in tiny shops, homes, or garages. I loved hearing each craftsman’s unique story, how each item was built with a sense of pride, and how connected our community felt to the products these craftsmen created for them. I knew that I had to find a way to share that experience.
