Description

Remnants of shibori cotton and silk are knotted into beads and strung on a vibrant piece of silk to create this two strand necklace. We’ve accentuated the two-strand design with hoops 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 upcycling of bomb fragments.

Due to the handmade nature of this product, it is only available in multi-colour fabrics. Please email us to confirm which colours are available.

  • Material: Cotton, up-cycled bomb fragments
