Recycled Metal
Handmade by villagers in Ban Naphia, Xiangkhoang Province

The legacy of the Indochina War remains today in Laos, the most bombed country on earth. With the assistance of the Mines Advisory Grou (MAG), resourceful villagers have safely collected unexploded ordinance (UXO) along with scrap metal and have converted it into a range of recycled metal products. Metal is melted over a fire and poured into sand molds. 

Our products are locally made with natural materials by the hands of artisans we trust. Slight variation in color, texture, and pattern are common and are celebrated, as products may be produced by several different women.

We trade with and provide training for many of our artisans to improve their skills and increase income for their families. Because so many of our artisans live in remote communities, our efforts help provide access to markets their personal networks are unable to reach.
