Handcrafted by village artisans in Laos, war scrap aluminium bomb casings are recast to create the beautiful Peace Bangle.
Presented in a handmade Saa Paper envelope with attached story card, the Loom Designs Peace Project Bangle makes a gift that gives back; providing sustainable income and contributing towards rehabilitation for bomb affected victims.
From 1964 to 1973 approximately 270 million bombs were dropped on Laos by the USA. An estimated 80 million UXO failed to detonate and still litter the land.
Loom Designs Peace Jewellery has been re-cast from aluminium war scrap. Village artisans melt down this war scrap in traditional earthen kilns, using basic wood ash moulds they turn a negative into beautiful meaningful jewellery.
This Peace Project provides sustainable income to the metal artisans. Loom Designs donates a further $1 from the sale of each item to COPE Laos, rehabilitating UXO survivors.
