Peace Project Hmong Choker - Turq
The Peace Project
A collaboration between Loom Designs and Village Artisans in Laos
From 1964-1973 approximately 270 million bombs were dropped on Laos by the USA. An estimated 80 million UXO failed to detonate and still litter the land. Loom Designs Peace Jewellery has been re cast from aluminium war scrap. This Peace Project provides sustainable income for the metal artisans, and training and employment to the Hmong women who sew the fine traditional embroidery for the Hmong Chokers.
Loom Designs donates $1 from the sale of each item to COPE Laos, rehabilitating UXO survivors. copelaos.org
