Description

Remnants of shibori cotton and silk are knotted into beads and strung on a vibrant piece of silk to create this bracelet. We’ve accentuated the bracelet with additional beads made from upcycled bomb fragments that are present in the Lao countryside.

The upcycled bomb beads come to us from Article 22, a Lao-based jewelry social enterprise that works with mine clearing organisations to rid the countryside of mines and with local communities to create income opportunities by encouraging the safe upcycle of bomb fragments.

Due to the handmade nature of this product, it is only available in multi-colour fabrics. Please add comments at checkout if you have a preference for the colour. We can offer: Red, Blue, Purple and Black

  • Material: Cotton, up-cycled bomb fragments
