Get an unique look with an amazing designed Pig&Hen Gorgeous George Bracelet, made of authentic ship rope, this bracelet will stand the test of time. Some people are born with a pretty face, Gorgeous George wasn’t. Not that he cares – a pretty face won’t save you while roaming the crashing and churning waters along the Atlantic coast.

These bracelets are handmade in Amsterdam, by using authentic ship rope we carry on the Dutch legacy. They are meant to survive a lifetime, are stronger than steel and will age like your wrinkled face. Pig & Hen is a bold and refined brand producing handmade bracelets in Amsterdam for men, capitalizing on a unique and authentic brand story. Strong, unique and sustainable.
In the early 1600s, Dutch explorers set sail to unknown parts of the world, eventually boasting the largest naval fleet on Earth. 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, mariners 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.
