This special edition Trailblazer Lao Silk Bracelet was inspired by the Baci ceremony and designed to help ring in a hopeful and loving Lao New Year (April 13-15)! In Laos and other parts of Southeast Asia, the Baci ceremony consists of tying a white thread to a person's hand to wish them good luck, representing the ties of family and community. We hope that this Lao New Year and throughout the year, our Trailblazer Gold Lao Silk Bracelet helps you celebrate the ties of family and friendship with the people you love, while joining you to our community of history, healing, and hope.

 

All items from ARTICLE22 are upcycled with remnants of war mixed with other scrap metal. The metal bead on the bracelet you see here is made from scrap metal including shrapnel from bombs dropped on Laos during the Secret War. Created by local Lao artisans, ARTICLE22 gives these villagers 5x more pay than the average hourly income in Laos.

 

 

The Trailblazer collaboration between Legacies and ARTICLE22 represents a power that each and every one of us holds. Whether you are a man or woman, each and every one of us has the power to have an impact on someone’s life. Legacies of War gets 30% of each sale to continue their life saving work generating millions of dollars of US government funding to  clear Laos of 80 million unexploded bombs. Legacies sees none of these funds and runs solely on the generous support of foundations, private donors, and creative collaborations like the Trailblazer Collection.

 

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.

 

$32 clears 2m2 of Laotian landscape

 
This bracelet is made with silk naturally dyed, hand spun, and twisted with metallic gold thread by women weavers in Laos.
