Just in! Bombangles from Laos. 

Did you know that during the 'secret war' in Laos, fought alongside the Vietnam war, an average of 9 tonnes of cluster bombs was dropped every eight minutes! Of the 270 million cluster bombs that rained down on the people of Laos, 80 million failed to detonate. This deadly legacy means that, to this day, vast swathes of land can not be farmed.

But these bombs are now harvested for a different purpose. They are turned into fairly traded bangles. When we wear these bangles we make an investment in the future of young disadvantaged Laotians and we remember the havoc that war brings.
