Our bracelets are available in sizes XS (17 cm), S (19 cm), M (21 cm) and L (22 cm). You can find your size by measuring the circumference of your wrist.
Simply take a piece of ribbon (e.g. thread or shoelaces), put it around your wrist and measure the length with a ruler or tape measure. Your Bracenet should ideally be 0.5-1.5 cm longer, depending on how tight you want it to be. You can find our recommendation in the following table:
|Wrist circumference||Recommended size|
|15,5cm – 16,5cm||XS (17cm)|
|16,6cm – 18,5cm||S (19cm)|
|18,6cm – 20,5cm||M (21cm)|
|20,6cm – 21,5cm||L (22cm)|
We are also happy to manufacture a custom size for you. Please contact our Customer Happiness Team at [email protected]
It’s best to have someone help you put on your size-adjustable Bracenet. But you can do it yourself in just a few steps. You can find illustrated instructions here.
We manufacture our Bracenets from former fishing nets. We receive most of these nets from our partner organisations Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving, who salvage them from the seas with their worldwide diving teams.
Because fishing nets have many different colours, we can always create new Bracenet editions for you. But we never know if we will recover a certain colour again. Learn more about the colours of fishing nets.
If you particularly like a Bracenet, you shouldn’t wait with your order. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed about the latest Bracenets! Scroll all the way down to find the subscription form.
We follow strict criteria for the selection of our hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts and bags. They are all made from 100% organic cotton. You can find more detailed information on the individual product pages.
All Bracenets are equipped with a stainless steel magnetic clasp as standard. Many are also available with an optional bayonet clasp for an extra secure fit.
For the adjustable bracelets, we use a stainless steel bead and 2 sliding knots that allow you to adjust the size to your wrist.

Since we make our bracenets from former fishing nets, their colours also come from these nets. Within a net colour, the colour intensity differs due to influences such as sunlight, waves and friction on reefs, cliffs and wrecks. We do not change the colour of the Bracenets. Learn more about the colours of fishing nets!
Once we have completely processed a net, we can only offer this colour again once it has been recovered. If you particularly like a Bracenet, you therefore shouldn’t wait with your order.

We manufacture our Bracenets from former fishing nets. As we do not treat these nets in any other way apart from cleaning them with water, the structure, colour and knots all come from the original net.
The mesh size of a net determines how far apart the knots are and how many knots a Bracenet has. Some Bracenets also have no knots. This can have two reasons: Either we have elaborately untied them for you, or they are made of knotless ropes that belong to former fishing nets. Learn more about how fishing nets differ!
We choose the names of our Bracenets to match the sea regions they remind us of. This may have something to do with their colour or with the origin of the nets, but it does not always mean that this is where the nets come from.

In 2015, Madeleine and Benjamin, the founding team of Bracenet, travelled with their backpacks on their annual holiday to Tanzania and Zanzibar. While diving, they soon discovered pieces of old fishing nets everywhere and thus encountered ghost nets for the first time. The two could not stand idly by and began to collect the nets. Lost in thought, they finally each put a piece around their wrist – and saw a bracelet in front of them. The idea of Bracenet was born! Read the whole story of Bracenet’s founding here.
Ghost nets are old, lost or deliberately discarded fishing nets. They drift through our oceans and are a major threat to ecosystems because they kill countless marine animals and take 400-600 years to decompose. 46% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch alone, the largest rubbish vortex in the world, is made up of these nets and up to 1 million tonnes more enter our oceans every year. Learn more!
We want to save our oceans! That’s why we regularly donate to the protection of the oceans and marine life. To date, we have transferred over €200,000 to our partner organisations and many other great projects. Thank you for being part of our mission and donating with us!
The majority of our donations go to Healthy Seas. This organisation saves marine animals and ecosystems by recovering ghost nets from the oceans and breathing new life into them. We have been working closely with them since 2016 and receive many of their recovered ghost nets. Our donations fund recovery missions, boat rentals, hazard training, diving equipment and preventative measures, among other things. Learn more about Healthy Seas here.
With many of our products we also support specific organisations and projects, for example Sea Shepherd, Shark Allies and many more. You can find more information on the respective product pages.
Healthy Seas rescues marine animals and ecosystems by recovering ghost nets from the oceans and breathing new life into them. Since 2016, we have been working closely together to upcycle many of their recovered ghost nets. We regularly donate to Healthy Seas to enable further recovery missions and preventative measures – over €150,000 so far (as of 05/22). Learn more.
Ghost Diving is the world’s leading ghost net recovery organisation. The association of 250 volunteer divers worldwide works closely with Healthy Seas to recover nets from depths of up to 50 metres. Our donations to Healthy Seas also directly benefit their work, funding boat rental fees, hazard training and diving equipment. Learn more.
Nofir is a pioneer in the recycling of fishing equipment. The company collects old and discarded equipment across Europe and beyond – such as Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving nets – to sort, clean and prepare them for recycling. Nofir passes on the nets that are in good condition to us for upcycling. Learn more.
To retrieve ghost nets from the sea, we work closely with Healthy Seas, Ghost Diving and Nofir. Healthy Seas navigates salvage missions with Ghost Diving’s 250 volunteer, specially trained divers worldwide. They remove the ghost nets from wrecks and reefs at depths of up to 50 metres and bring them ashore. The nets are then taken to Nofir, where they are sorted and cleaned in an environmentally friendly way using only water. Nofir also collects discarded nets directly from fisheries so that they do not end up in the sea in the first place.
From Nofir, the ghost nets and discarded fishing nets eventually come to us. Today, we also receive nets from many other sources, for example from NGOs such as the Ocean Voyages Institute, the Mare Foundation and the WWF, which also actively recover ghost nets. Some fisheries also send us their discarded nets directly so that they don’t end up in the sea in the first place. People who find pieces of nets on the beach can also always send them to us, as we are happy to process as many nets as possible – please fill in this form.
Great that you collected the washed up nets! Feel free to send us some information about the nets you found. We will then contact you to discuss how to proceed with them. Please fill in this form.
