Our story

We live life on the edge and love doing it with passion. We swim with sharks, throw down in the mud, sail across oceans and drink a bit too much, but that’s just us. Whatever our thrills are, we live that day-to-day life and in the end we always want to find our way back home, to our loved ones.

We have created Pig & Hen to help us find that way…

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.

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.

Handmade in Amsterdam

This is where our team is working day after day creating your Pig & Hen goods, all by hand, all with the greatest care and eye for detail.

Besides our trademark ship rope and stainless steel shackles, it’s mainly laughter, some good music and about ten pairs of skilled hands that are the main tools and materials we create our products with. It’s a group of people with very diverse backgrounds: finance students, musicians, an architect, a sportsfreak who’s also a mother of two – just to name a few. Each with their own peculiar nickname, which we will wisely keep to ourselves.

“It’s a group of friends, that’s what working here feels like,” says production manager Nicky. “They would go through fire and water for each other. It’s an atmosphere that’s pretty unique.”
