PIG & HEN
Pig & Hen SALTY STEVE
Save $ -89.00
No rum for Salty Steve: his favourite drink is seawater and he drinks it by the gallon. Thanks to this disturbing ability, he has survived the sinking of a myriad of ships and has been sailing the seas longer than anybody knows. He is a quiet man with a salt crusted beard who will just silently stare at you when you ask him his age. Salty Steve’s rope has a width of 6 mm.
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
