Product Care: 

  • Luckily for us (less lucky for the planet) fishing nets are nigh on indestructible, waterproof and hardy
  • Avoid putting them near open flames, chemicals or sharp objects
  • Don’t pick at loose threads – cut them or send them back for repair if they bother you – they are an unavoidable result of using real lost nets
  • Nets after being gnarled in the sand and sea they often have distinctive small ocean-induced blemishes and can be rough in places when first worn
  • Due to being hand made bracelets vary in length by several mm
  • Avoid wearing them when using cleaning products (chemicals in certain soaps and detergents can tarnish metal over years and dissolve fixing agents)
  • Be gentle when taking on and off – this lengthens their already long lifespan, as the metal clasps can be damaged over many years if abused
