Pig & Hen jewellery is handmade in Amsterdam with authentic ship rope. Each piece is built to last a lifetime, and like the sailors who wear them, improve as they age.
Why are these bracelets called Pig & Hen?
In the 1600s Dutch sailors would often have a tattoo of a pig on one foot and a hen on the other. The belief was that this would protect them against bad luck and that it gave the sailors the ability to survive when they had to abandon ship, floating to shore like the pigs or hens aboard that would safely float to shore in their wooden crates. Now you too can enjoy the good luck with your own handmade, authentic Pig & Hen bracelet.
