Recycled Metal with handwoven TaiLeu fabric pouch
Ask about available patterns and colors
The legacy of the Indochina War remains today in Laos, the most bombed country on earth. Resourceful villagers in Ban Naphia, Xiengkhouang Province, have safely collected unexploded ordinance (UXO) along with scrap metal and have converted it into a range of recycled metal products. Matesai works with these artisans to create unique products, many of which supplement other artisans' work. This purchase will support village-based handicrafts and will contribute to rural livelihoods in Laos.
Our items are hand made from the village and therefore are not all exactly the same. When selecting products you may find they are a little different than the photo.
