About Article 22
Article 22 jewellery is made from repurposed bomb metal. It is estimated that over 250 million cluster bombs were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War. 80 million of those bombs failed to detonate. This impacts Laos negatively as the nation strives to build development.
Article 22 partners with MAG (Mines Advisory Group) to fund the safe removal of Cluster Bomb remnants from Laos Soil . MAGS has cleared over 60,853,231 square metres of Laos farmland of bombs to date. Each piece of exquisite jewellery provides more funding to clear unexploded ordinance from Laos. An amazing organisation that was supported by Princess Dianna during her lifetime.
