FOR THE OPTIMIST
Pointing forward without forgetting the past, the arrow is the past, present and future in one. A universal symbol of courage and movement.
It is with this spirit that farmer-artisans in Laos began rebuilding their lives after the devastation of the Vietnam War, which left their land contaminated with 80 million unexploded bombs. Turning shrapnel and scrap into spoons, they inspired and lead a movement of reconciliation, transformation, and hope that is expressed through ARTICLE22 jewelry, worn and shared across the globe.
Each ARTICLE22 piece is a modern heirloom an actual piece of history redesigned with intention that inspires action toward our future, individually and collectively.
Each piece 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 bombs contaminating land in Laos.
