The tail of Pig Island

"A family of pigs were shipwrecked on an uninhabited island in the Bahamas. The clever pigs learned to mould and adapt to their environment. The fun and clever SeaPigs swim in the ocean and live on the beach, and it’s now become known as Pig Island.

Pig Island

The Bahamas

Our brand is inspired by the tale of Pig Island, whereby a group of pigs escaped a shipwreck in the Bahamas by swimming to the shore of a tiny, uninhabited island that they adapted to, and remain on to this day. We see this tale as a beautiful example of nature and a story that embodies our light-hearted take on the more serious issue of humanity’s effect on Our Planet.

I believe that brands must have something to say, just as much as they have something to sell.
