Pig & Hen Custom Bracelet Pop-up


On November 3-4, 2018, we welcome all to join us at our Portland shop for the official launch of our new Pig&Hen bracelets. As a new brand available at Bridge & Burn, we are excited to welcome members of their team on their first U.S. visit from Amsterdam.

This weekend only, Pig & Hen will make a guest appearance at our Portland shop for a special custom-bracelet-making pop-up. Choose your favorite rope, shackle and whipping, and watch it be made right in front of you. Their bracelets are all made with meticulous care by hand, and are crafted with authentic Dutch ship rope. Not only are these bracelets built to last a lifetime, but they are also believed to bring the wearer a bit of luck as well (how else do you think the 17th century Dutch sailors made it home safely after a long journey? Reliable ship rope, of course).

In the early 1600’s the Dutch were the leading nation to sail 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 sailors tattooed a small pig and hen on their feet. It was believed to give the sailors the ability to survive and find land when they had to abandon ship; because just as the pigs and hens were able to ride the tide home—as they were kept in wooden crates and thus floated to shore—so too would the sailors.
