Bracelets by Pig & Hen
In the early 1600’s the Dutch were the leading nation sailing out to unknown parts of the world, with the biggest naval fleet the world had ever seen. To protect themselves against bad luck the men had a tattoo of a pig and a hen on their feet. It was believed it gave the sailors the ability to survive when they had to abandon ship. The sailors felt they would be able to find land, just like the Pig and Hen who were kept in wooden crates and thus floated, and would let the tide bring them home. To carry on this Dutch legacy, Pig & Hen bracelets are handmade in Amsterdam, using authentic ship rope. They are meant to survive a lifetime, are stronger than steel and will age beautifully.
