Born over a decade ago from the needs of hardy British surfers, Finisterre designs functional and sustainable product for those that share a love of the sea.
It started in 2003 in a flat above a surf shop with an innovative fleece that was designed to keep out chill winds and warm up cold bodies. Since these early days, driven by those who have jumped on board, supported by their customers and suppliers, the brand and product has widened beyond these original beginnings. Yet from their cliff top workshop in St. Agnes, they’ve stayed true to their original design ethos of functionality and sustainability brought to life in an understated style and identity, always remaining committed to product, environment and people.
The name of one of the most rugged headlands that bravely bears the full brunt of the North Atlantic gales, and a former shipping forecast area, Finisterre literally means end of the earth or land’s end. The place where land ends has intrigued man for centuries, fostering both a real and a romantic relationship with the sea; a relationship that runs deep in their narrative.
The Aeris is perfect for summer evenings at the beach, adding a welcome hit of warmth as the sun goes down. Made from water resistant 100% recycled polyester with a part-recycled PrimaLoft fill, it’s fully reversible and packs away into its inner pocket when not in use.

They’ve taken a heavyweight workwear cotton fabric and applied a refined shirting style to create the Ballantyne Shirt. Versatile and durable, wear it buttoned up or roll the sleeves up and use as a summer overshirt. Produced in Portugal by a vertical mill, where the cotton is spun dyed and woven then made into garments all under one roof.

Synonymous with surfing, they’ve gone back to the hoody’s roots in American military athletic wear to create the Kraken Hoody. Made from a classic loop back terry fabric with subtle in-seam side pockets, this sweat will only get better with age.

The Litus is a highly technical waterproof cunningly disguised as a casual jacket. Lightweight and breathable with fully taped seams, the Pertex Shield Eco fabric is part recycled nylon and has a smooth matt finish, with a lightweight coating inside which protects the membrane and feels light and dry next to the skin. The contemporary wearable style means you’ll want to wear it everywhere, rain or shine.
