When you browse through our shop, you will quickly notice that our products all look different: They come in varying colours, are thicker or thinner and sometimes have one, two, or even three knots. We are often asked whether we can offer additional colours, too. The answer – it depends! In this article we will explain you more about this.
Once you step into the “eco-bubble”, you will soon be confronted with this sort of “eco-perfectionism”. But be assured: you don’t have to do everything at once to change something!

You’ve probably asked yourself before who manufactures your Bracenets – at least when you finally held the lovingly wrapped, new Bracenet in your hands.
I’m Ann-Katrin and have joined the team in March as human resources manager. In this article, I will share with you my experience during the application process, how we interpret leadership, some insights into our team and what Bracenet stands for.
Our products such as Bracenets, dog leashes and keychains are completely new – and yet they are made of used material. How does that fit together? The answer is simple: we upcycle recovered ghost nets that were originally intended for many years of fishing in harsh environments and are thus still suitable for daily use. In this article, we will take a closer look at upcycling, what the differences are to recycling, and why we choose to upcycle.
When we recover ghost nets with Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving, we are not looking for the colourful and beautiful nets you know from our products. For now, they are still dirty and covered with seaweed! Only after our partner Nofir has cleaned them in an environmentally friendly process, will they regain their many colours. Nofir makes an invaluable contribution to the fight against ghost nets and in this article, we want to tell you more about their work.
We produce by hand – from the very beginning, as even the ghost nets for our products are retrieved by hand (and fins): Our partners at Ghost Diving (previously Ghost Fishing) have taken it upon themselves to free the seas from the haunt of the nets. The experienced, voluntary technical divers recover ghost nets from depths of up to 50 meters and save countless marine animals in the process.
Since December 2016, we have been collaborating with the Lebenshilfewerk Neumünster (LHW). Time flies! This is a good moment to pause and reflect: These were three years of partnership, three years of joint progress and three years of support and product innovation – for LHW not only assists us in producing Bracenets, but also in developing new products.

We can only achieve far-reaching changes and effectively implement preventive measures if everyone is pulling in the same direction. This is why we have now joined the GGGI – in order to participate in a global network and fight the issue of ghost nets with partners from all over the world. The GGGI brings together business, science, NGOs and politics – and thus offers a unique forum for saving the oceans through global cooperation.
Sustainable upcycling with local and fair production, has belonged to our main mission at Bracenet since the start. Now, we have roped together a collaboration with Hamburg label Bridge&Tunnel, who share these same values.
We have been collaborating with Healthy Seas since 2016 to recover ghost nets from the oceans and to prevent more nets from ending up at sea. Additionally, we donate 10 % of the proceeds of our products to Healthy Seas – and you are probably eager to learn how your contribution helps to fight the ghost nets.
Our products like the Bracenets and dog leashes are made out of ghost nets, as you have probably noticed. But what are ghost nets, why are they a problem and why do we use them to create new products? In this article, we will answer these questions in five points.
