Lemon & Line handcrafts nautically inspired bracelets and accessories in Newport, Rhode Island.

The history is a little foggy, but the brand was launched one summer night over a ration of Dark 'n Stormys. Staring down at the weathered turks head bracelet on his wrist, life-long sailor David Norton saw the opportunity for something different.

Using only marine grade materials, he set out to make the “new” rope bracelet. Clean & subtle in approach, Lemon & Line debuted the original square knot bracelet in 2010. Now offering a large selection of styles and colors, Lemon & Line has something for the sailor in all of us.

If you are in Newport - drop by our Flagship Store at 421 Thames Street.
