Space for your sustainable shopping: BRACENET bags made from hemp fabrics and former fishing nets.
With our products we collect donations for marine and environmental protection. So far, we have donated €250,000 to organizations such as Healthy Seas, Sea Shepherd, Everwave, the Ocean Voyages Institute and many more. €150,000 of that goes solely to Healthy Seas – actively supporting the recovery of more ghost nets and preventive measures. More to come!
The 250 divers from Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving are traveling worldwide, braving wind and waves, to retrieve more and more ghost nets They have now recovered over 773 tons – roughly equivalent to the weight of 6 blue whales. Our donations fund, among other things, boat rentals, safety training, and diving equipment. Thank you for your help!
After retrieval, the ghost nets are initially sorted and cleaned with water by Nofir. Then, we process them with loving upcycling craftsmanship in Hamburg into many new products, such as Bracenets and dog leashes. So far, we’ve given around 190,000 meters of net a new lease on life – equivalent to the length of a total of 8,000 sperm whales!
Bags made out of old fishing nets?
Ghost nets, fishing nets that have been lost or intentionally sunk, are drifting through all oceans, threatening underwater life. We salvage the nets to save oceans and marine life! We process them into new upcycled products like our Bracenets and our Ocean Couture, all fair and locally handmade in Hamburg.
Our bags are made from resource-saving hemp woven fabric and salvaged ghost nets. You’re not only making a statement for the oceans, but also for slow and fair fashion.
We regularly donate to Healthy Seas to finance further recovery missions and preventive measures and support many other projects for the protection of the oceans and marine life. Learn more about our mission & our impact!
