Pig & Hen Will Save Your Life

Pig & Hen Will Save Your Life

Pig & Hen is a bold and adventurous brand producing handmade bracelets from Amsterdam, capitalising on a unique and authentic brand story.

In the early 1600s, Dutch explorers set sail to unknown parts of the world, boasting the largest naval fleet the world has ever seen. With some serious sea legs, they discovered new lands and ways of life – all the while overcoming oceans of obstacles along the way.

To protect themselves from bad luck, sailors inked tattoos of a pig and a hen on their feet because crates of pigs and hens were oftentimes the only items left floating after a shipwreck. The sailors believed a pig and hen tattoo would help them not only survive the strongest of storms, but also allow them to float back safely to their beloved homeland.

Hand crafted in Amsterdam with authentic nautical rope and marine-grade steel, Pig & Hen bracelets bear the pride and resilience of these brave men.

They stand tough, last a lifetime and hold strong no matter how rough the seas.
