Finisterre was 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.
Since day one Finisterre have taken a pioneering approach to making better and more sustainable product, challenging and innovating, seeking alternatives to what has gone before. Committed to making informed decisions about their impact on the environment and are constantly trying to push boundaries to make the best product possible. In their eyes this is gear that will be with you the longest; and the longer you have it, the more attached to it you become.
“The whole direction was inspired by remote surf spots in Scotland so it made perfect sense to be inspired by the local fishing boats and nets as well as all the Highland flora and fauna.
Right from the beginning we knew we really wanted to create a traditional blanket and have it made in Scotland. Bute was the perfect match for us as we felt whilst traditional, Bute Fabrics is also modern and forward thinking. That’s something we wanted to achieve in our blanket.
Those bright colours from the moodboard (including a signature Finisterre orange) were translated into a modern
plaid pattern which felt perfectly at home in the range.
We must’ve worked on at least 20 colour variations and pattern sizes before settling on the final version. The Bute design team were then able to bring this artwork to life.
This is what true collaboration is about.” - Deborah Luffman, Product Director, Finisterre
