a woman knows the face of the man she loves like the sailor knows the open sea

we are suckers for romantic stories and wearing our hearts on our sleeves…or our wrists.

so we leave you today with our new favorite accessory and the tale behind it:

The Legend of the Sailor Knot Bracelet:

Old time sailors made bracelets from ropes to show off their rope working skills. They also used them to wipe down their brow while swabbing the deck. But that’s only half of it. These maritime bracelets were believed to bring the sailors good fortune. So the sailors would handcraft a bracelet to bring to their sweethearts while in port.

Sweet, huh? Just wish you boys still were still so sentimental…sigh.

xoxo
