WHERE WE STARTED

Born from the needs of hardy British surfers, Finisterre designs the best and most sustainable product for those who share a love of the sea.

Founded in 2003, Finisterre set out to provide British cold water surfers with product that is fit for purpose, sustainably sourced and built to last.

Since these early days driven by those who have inspired and joined us along the way, supported by our customers and suppliers, the brand has grown far beyond these original beginnings. From our cliff top workshop in St. Agnes, we remain true to our founding commitments: product, environment and people.

We are proud to have recently become a B Corp certified business, joining a growing community using business for positive change. It’s an affirmation of the first 15 years of our journey, at the same time as helping us identify areas we can improve and work towards. It’s a moral and legally binding commitment that we take a long-term view in all that we do, having regard to our customers, employees, suppliers and the environment.

Our design ethos has always been to build the best and most sustainable product we can. We create product that is fit for purpose, built to last and, wherever possible, that encompasses innovation to deliver a sustainability agenda. Through a long standing commitment to this outlook we have created product suitable for any adventure that includes recycled insulation jackets, pioneering FC-Free waterproofs, our own 100% natural blend of Merino, the ground breaking Bowmont wool project and an innovative and responsibly made denim range.

Well designed product becomes part of you; it shares your adventures and journeys, with every scuff mark telling a story.

Environment

Informed decisions around our impact.

A love of the sea and a respect of the environment is central to Finisterre; it is our inspiration and our playground.

We are a growing brand in the business of making product, so what we do and all of our decisions inevitably have an impact on the environment. As a business, we strive to keep this footprint and impact to a minimum. We believe durability is the key to creating the best possible product. Our goal is long-lasting products which are sustainably sourced, using minimal water and manufactured in a responsible manner. This is our commitment and a start in reducing our effect on the planet.

We don’t have all the answers, but in the face of an ever changing landscape, we always seek as much information as possible, allowing us to make informed decisions. We are also not afraid to seek alternatives or challenge what has gone before in order to achieve these ambitions. Whether it’s the non- mulesed wool in our base layers, the organic cotton in our t-shirts, or the recycled polyester insulation in our jackets, it’s our approach, and one we’ve been refining since 2003 and continue to deliver every day.

With our workshop being situated on the coast, and much of our free time spent in the sea, ocean plastics are always at front of mind, and a growing concern for us. As such, we have made a commitment to eradicating single-use plastic from our supply chain and workspaces by the end of 2018.

People

Relationships that we believe in.

The attention to detail behind all our products is what drives us forward, as well as the relationships we build along the way, whether it’s with our manufacturers, employees or customers.

We will always make the effort to get out of the workshop to meet and learn from the people who make our product. Developing innovative product starts with an idea… Read more

We will always make the effort to get out of the workshop to meet and learn from the people who make our product. Developing innovative product starts with an idea born from the workshop, but we rely on the skill and integrity of our suppliers, their support and energy to make things happen. This open-minded approach to innovation and manufacturing has led us to work with leaders in the field.

Similarly we value the honest dialogue we have with both our customers and employees, all conversations that help us evolve and get better at what we do.
