About the Makers
Article 22 bangles are made from repurposed metal from cluster bombs that were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War. Each bangle helps fund the ongoing work of MAG (Mines Advisory Group) who work towards the removal of the 80 million unexploded ordinances that remain in the soil of this resilient nation. Article 22 jewellery is made by 15-20 artisan families in rural Laos. The families work in safe conditions and receive a fair wage for their work.
