Growing up by the sea, founder Tom Kay had always worried for the fishermen, sailors, captains and crews aboard ships facing hard and unpredictable conditions. So, in 2003, in a flat above a surf shop off the coast of Devon, surf and outdoor brand Finisterre kickstarted its journey. The range began with a sustainably produced fleece, designed to keep out chill winds and warm up cold bodies.
Over a decade later, Finisterre is a certified B Corp, spearheading an eco-conscious business revolution and committed to inspiring a love of the sea. From beach booties made from algae and seaweed to recycling wetsuits, Finisterre also uses water-soluble, recyclable, biodegradable packaging. They offer repairs to reduce product waste and continue to develop social programmes like their Seasuit Project, developed to offer more Muslim women access to surfing.
