You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more transparent supply chain than Finisterre’s. They believe that total transparency, tight relationships, and harmonious production makes for better end products, and as part of their “I-Spy” traceability programme you can find out all about the producers and even organise to go on a factory tour.
Believing that durability is the key to a sustainable product, Finisterre guarantee against manufacturing defects, carefully testing all of their fabrics and products, and making sure that each one is easily repairable. They source all of their fabrics sustainably, using minimal water and low impact toxins. UK sourced wool is their go-to fibre, because of its thermo-regulating and anti bacterial properties, as well as being natural, biodegradable, and possible to sustainably source close by to their workshop in the UK. It currently makes up around 25% of the wool in their collections. They are committed to shrinking their supply chain and sourcing fabrics as locally as possible to the manufacturers, to reduce their carbon footprint.
