The #Haagenbracelets – a taste of freedom on the wrist

What is a Haagen bracelet we hear you ask? Well, we have teamed up with our good friend, Kristian Haagen, in order to make his stylish bracelets available for Monochrome readers. This style of bracelet dates back to the 1960’s, when they could be seen on the wrists of surfers on every beach worth surfing, from Malibu to Bondi. They have distinctive colour combinations and represent the laid-back surf lifestyle.

In the 1960s, a time long before Facebook or Instagram, knowledge of the great surf spots was little more than rumour, passed on by word of mouth as surfers travelled the world seeking the best waves. Originally from Morocco, but traded amongst surfers, these bracelets were beautifully coloured and full of character, each one distinctive, each one telling a story.

Surfing was a way of life, a spiritual calling, a lifetime of dedication. As paths crossed, these surf travellers, fuelled on hipster vibes, would return with tales of exotic places. For the same reason these bracelets were created back then, the ‘Haagen’ bracelet (check out #haagenbracelets on Instagram) is worn today to signify your freedom of spirit. The Haagen bracelet is also the perfect companion to your watch game!

HOW TO USE: You simply tie them on, (one end has a hole to loop the other through), a firm knot to secure it – and one size fits all! According to Kristian, it might help to burn the the end and/or the knot so the strings don’t get loose.

Please note: exact patterns may vary.
