THE NINES x ARTICLE22 - Circle Disc Cufflinks Sterling Silver
The Parisian brand "The Nines",contributed its know-how to design this unique cufflink collaboration.
This exclusive series consists of two pairs of AG925 solid silver cufflinks and aluminum from recycled bombs.
Between 1964 and 1973 during the Vietnam War more than 2 million tons of bombs were dropped on the land of Laos, the most bombed country in the history of mankind. In the 1970s, artisans and peasants in Laos recycle these bombs into spoons by recovering the metal from the shells.
Elizabeth and Camille, founders of the Article22 brand, are inspired by this unique skill and decided to turn these remains of bombs into jewelry in order to raise funds in collaboration with the NGO MAG (Mines Advisory Group) which launches demining operations. The craftsmen, from one of the provinces most affected by the bombings in Laos, are working closely with Article22 to create these unique jewels.
The packaging also to its history. Made from rice leaf and cotton pouch, these are made directly in Laos by a women's collective to help a greater number of artisans, in total, Article22 employs more than 40 in Laos .
Since the creation of the brand, the equivalent of 40 football fields have already been cleared.
The jewels become objects of happiness, courage, peace, reparation and reconciliation and support the work of an organization and craftsmen who too often see their impact as limited.
This positive approach based on sustainable development, respect for culture using local resources immediately attracted the Parisian ready-to-wear brand The Nines.
