From the PEACEBOMB collection, this piece tells ARTICLE22's story of transformation from bombs into modern artifacts. The arrow bangle has been with us almost as long as they started working with their artisan partners in Laos. 

The Peace Bangle is hand cast + repurposed military grade aluminum from Vietnam War era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminum scrap. 

Each piece is authentically handcrafted in Laos and finished in Vientiane or New York. It all gives back to support traditional Laotian artisan livelihoods, village development, community endeavors and further de-mining efforts. 

Your purchase contributes to MAG (Mines Advisory Group) to safely & expertly clear some of the 80 million unexploded Vietnam War era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminum scrap contaminating land in Laos. 

 $70 clears 4sq meters of Laotian landscape


$55 clears 3sq meters of Laotian landscape
