Textiles: Eco Design


As lead designers for Finisterre, Tom and Debbie are on a mission – to create the most eco-friendly surf-wear brand in the world. From their HQ in Cornwall to fabric suppliers in Japan and manufacturers in Portugal, we follow the pair as they explain how they reduce the environmental and ethical impact of their clothes by considering the use of materials and energy throughout their design, manufacture, transportation and use. We see how they source and develop eco-friendly technical materials - from recycled polyester to organic wool and cotton; we follow Tom on a series of environmental factory audits in Portugal and we find out how Finisterre work with customers to reduce the carbon footprint of products throughout their life-cycle.
