Though you might not sail the seven seas or even enjoy setting foot in a dinghy, you can still look like you have seas legs with a handmade bracelet from Pig&Hen.

The Dutch have a rich naval history, which dates back as far as the 1600s. With one of the biggest fleets the world had seen, the Dutch naval influence spread far and wide. The life of a sailor was one that bent to the whims of the sea, combatting weather or lack thereof in their quest for new lands. Legend has it that to protect themselves against bad luck sailors had an image of a pig and a hen tattooed on their feet, to help them find land or tides home should they abandon ship. Pig&Hen is an Amsterdam-based fashion label that has taken this legend into consideration when creating its range of goods.

Specialising in creating understated bracelets for men, Pig&Hen craft their wares from authentic ship rope and shackles, designed to last and provide a touch of good luck of it’s own. Pig&Hen’s bracelets come in a range of colours and patterns, each offering a unique touch to your outfit. Although based in Amsterdam, Pig&Hen has free shipping worldwide, and can be found at Deus Ex Machina in Byron Bay.
