Our partner, the Ghost Diving NGO with more than 170 voluntary divers, is recovering ghost nets every week in the sea all around the globe which we then use for our Bracenets. The retrieved nets are all in different colours and different conditions, so we can’t promise which Bracenets will return to our shop or which Bracenet colours will be new. If you are interested in the availability of old and new Bracenets, please register for our newsletter or follow us on our social media channels.
Right now, the nets are recovered in many different countries including New Zealand, South Korea, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Malta, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Norway.

All Bracenets (and Keychains) are exclusively manufactured and packed by hand in Germany.
Yes, all hoodies, sweatshirts and bags are produced under fair working conditions and are certified accordingly.
We donate 10% of our proceeds to Healthy Seas. Healthy Seas is one of our partner organizations which among other things finances the ghost net retrieval trips of Ghost Diving. Apart from those recovering missions Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving are also doing a lot of educational work to inform about their work and bring awareness to the importance of marine conservation.
Besides our donations to Healthy Seas, we are also proud to have realized projects in order to support Sea Shepherd, the Pacific Garbage Screening project and the Goodnet project.
All Bracenets in our online shop have a magnetic clasp and are offered in 4 different sizes.
Selected retailers, like our cooperating airlines, also offer our Bracenet without a magnetic clasp. Those Bracenets have a stainless-steel pearl instead of a magnetic clasp and are fitted with two slipknots, which makes the Bracenet’s length adjustable. For the manufacturing of this kind of Bracenet a certain mesh size and thickness of the net is required, therefore these Bracenets are only available in selected colours.
Since February 2020 you can also get the “One fits all” Bracenets in our online shop.
No, the Bracenets are not chemically treated in any way. They are also cleaned without using chemicals. Every net is unique in its colouring and structure. Due to sun exposure and abrasion on riffs, cliffs and shipwrecks one net can have differences in colouring and structure. No piece of net resembles another one by 100%.
The net is not chemically treated in any way and every net is unique in its colouring and structure. The mesh size of the net defines how many knots each Bracenet will have. The larger the mesh size the less knots a Bracenet would have. In some cases, connecting threads between the ghost nets are retrieved, which can be used for Bracenets without knots. Those parts are very small though and therefore only used for Bracenets at fairs or events.
