About Us

Culture of consciousness


"We yearn to safeguard our playground"

A one-stop marketplace supporting the green outdoor sports community. Through partnerships with only the most transparent brands, TFC helps you enjoy outdoor sport while reducing your impact on the planet.


"Outdoor sport is deeply rooted in nature"

We yearn for a more conscious outdoor industry. Change relies not only on manufacturers, but the decisions consumers make. Our transparent marketplace helps you align choices with your personal values.


"A transparent and eco-focused marketplace"

We bring together a collection of high quality, sustainable surf and outdoor gear. By providing detailed information on products and the certifications, values and social responsibilities of the brands behind them, we empower a green community.

Who we are

The Fair Cottage is a Berlin-based community founded in 2016 focused on sustainable surf, outdoor sports, gear and lifestyles. We are lovers of nature and transparency with a desire to address the use of fast, unfair and unsustainable trade, and the bubble of misinformation that surrounds us.
