The bombs dropped by the US on Laos during the Vietnam War are displayed at the New York Fashion Week, now turned into jewellery.
Artisans in Laos, the most bombed country by capita, learnt to smelt bomb shards first into spoons and later succeeded in crafting necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other jewellery.
Article 22, a Brooklyn startup that introduced the “Peacebomb” jewellery to the general audience, views it as a proof that peace got the upper hand over war. Inscriptions on the bijouterie read "love is the bomb" and "dropped + made in Laos". Article 22 claims it paid the demining of 700,000 square miles in Laos.
