Amsterdam based bracelet brand Pig&Hen just launched their new lookbook for summer 2015. All their products are handmade in Holland using authentic ship rope. The products is a great addition to your denim outfit. The story behind the brand is pretty cool, for those who don’t know it yet, here you go…

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. With some serious sea legs, they discovered new lands, different ways of life but also ran into some big obstacles along the way. 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. Pig&Hen will save your life, even in a tight situation.

Check the lookbook here below. Pig&Hen, stronger than steel!
