The LOVEbomb Story
1964 – 1973 Laos
Two million tons of ordnance were dropped on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions.
That’s 1 B-52 plane load of bombs.
Every 8 minutes – 24 hours a day – for 9 years.
Laos is one of the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.
At the current rate of removal, it will take an estimated 800 years to clear all unexploded ordnance.
These startling facts were the driving force in the Sacred by Design quest to help change.
BEAUTY FROM UGLINESS AND A MESSAGE OF PEACE
From the heart of Laos, LOVEbomb jewellery is cast from melted bomb fragments, in wood and ash moulds.
Upcycled from safely sourced bomb scraps by artisans in Laos and made under Fair Trade conditions, each piece serves as a peaceful reminder of destruction, reconstruction and a hopeful future.
Each LOVEbomb product sold assists with safe land clearance and supports the artisans to provide for their families and village development.
