Fin­is­terre is more than just an out­door cloth­ing com­pany.

Born out of a love for the ocean and surf­ing cul­ture, it’s known for de­vel­op­ing sus­tain­able and func­tional cloth­ing – not only for surfers but also for but any­body who loves the sea. And now the la­bel is tak­ing that de­vo­tion one step fur­ther.

Fin­is­terre is col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Royal Na­tional Lifeboat In­sti­tu­tion (RNLI), one of the world’s old­est life-sav­ing char­i­ties, on a col­lec­tion of cloth­ing launch­ing this au­tumn. The two or­gan­i­sa­tions share many of the same val­ues, not least a com­mit­ment to pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment. Fin­is­terre’s col­lec­tions in­clude water­proof jack­ets that are free of flu­o­ro­car­bons (par­ti­cles that pol­lute the ocean), as well as or­ganic denim and knitwear made from 100% Bri­tish Merino wool. The RNLI col­lab­o­ra­tion col­lec­tion in­cludes FC-free water­proof jack­ets, knitwear, sweat­shirts and ac­ces­sories, in­clud­ing a beanie and socks – all de­signed to pro­tect from the harsh win­ter el­e­ments.

“The RNLI col­lab­o­ra­tion means a lot to me per­son­ally,” says Tom Kay, founder of Fin­is­terre, which is still based at a clifftop work­shop in St Agnes, Corn­wall. “To work with the RNLI on this limited-edi­tion range was a big mo­ment for us. The re­sult­ing prod­uct em­bod­ies our shared love and re­spect for the ocean, a sea­far­ing her­itage and the har­di­ness of the hu­man spirit.” And it’s not just a col­lab­o­ra­tion in name only – 10% of the pro­ceeds from the col­lec­tion’s sales will go to the RNLI. fin­is­terre.com
