Project peaceBOMB: Buying Back the Bombs
Project peaceBOMB combines human ingenuity and aluminum non-war and war scrap metal to create bracelets that tell a story about their makers and the legacies of our shared history: the Secret War, 1964-1973, during the Vietnam conflict which left Laos the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.
ARTICLE 22 creates sustainable, hand-made, and value added accessories that tell stories about their makers. Every purchase supports the development of communities in Laos.
A story about war and peace. Destruction and reconstruction. History. Instead of words, this story is composed of fragments of bombs, melted and shaped into a circle, a bracelet, a reminder.
