Between 1964 and 1973 during the Vietnam War more than 2 million tons of bombs were dropped on the land of Laos, the most bombed country (per citizen) in the history of mankind. In the 1970s, artisans and farmers in Laos recycled these bombs into spoons by recovering the metal from the shells. Elizabeth and Camille, founders of the brand, are inspired by this unique know-how and decide to turn these remains of bombs into jewels in order to raise funds in collaboration with the NGO MAG (Mines Advisory Group) which finances the demining operations.
The craftsmen, from one of the most bombed provinces in Laos, are working closely with Article22 to create these unique jewels. The packaging also to its history. Made of rice leaf and cotton pouch, these are made directly in Laos by a collective of women to help a larger number of artisans, in total Article22 employs more than 40 artisans in Laos.
