During times at sea, old time sailors made bracelets from ropes off their ships to show off their knot making skills. The sailors also used these rope bracelets to wipe the sweat off their brow whilst cleaning the deck as well as lifting cargo and supplies on and off the ship. Sailors wore them as lore had it these sailor bracelets brought them good fortune and kept them safe while at sea. Given as gifts to their sweethearts, they were a token of affection and served as a reminder of their sailor once he had returned to the sea. Hand woven cotton rope material.
