Product Description

Size: adult 7 cm diameter

Material: aluminium

Are you looking for ethically produced jewellery that is also of high quality and stylish? Perhaps you are looking for a meaningful gift? Or something to spoil yourself?  

This very special bangle is made from recycled bombshells (safely sourced). During the Vietnam War, Laos was heavily bombed. After the war, the local artisans turned bombs into spoons and fed their families. Since then, they have been transforming objects of violence into objects of beauty and functionality, which gives each spoon a powerful message of peace.

There are very few products in the world that have quite such a story to tell. This bangle embodies how fair trade production goes above and beyond standard manufacturing on so many levels: from empowering the rural poor to recycling materials, to utilising traditional artisan skills and – what this product does best – raising awareness about global issues. Saoban is a non-profit organisation in Laos that operates under fair trade principles and works with many remote villages.
