Description

Bracenet describes itself as a upcycling company. Alongside several partners such as Ghost Diving and Healthy Seas, they collect ghost fishing gear from the ocean floor, and transform this lost or discarded waste into useful products, in the process raising considerable funds for marine conservation projects. Initially known for their Bracenet bracelets, their range now includes other jewellery, bags, key chains, dog leashes, camera accessories, amongst others. Their motto: 'Save the seas, Wear a net'.
