Since we were little kids, the sea has captivated us. The sound of the waves soothes us. The sand beneath our feet grounds us. We have a great love for the ocean with its deep dark blue colors but finding our way back home and feeling the sand between our toes makes us smile just as much. The ocean calls to all of us at some point in our lives. This is the Navy / Sand collection, the place where earth and sea meet in one glorious beautiful conjunction.
Handmade in Amsterdam
Our 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.
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
