Unique Handicraft Gifts in Laos Made by UXOs

Today we trekked the unbeaten path to visit a village that makes specialty handicraft gift items made from recycled aluminum bombshells in Xieng Khouang, Laos using responsibly sourced and safely deactivated UXOs (Unexploded Ordinances) dropped by the Americans during the Vietnam War.

It is estimated that there are at least 78 million unexploded cluster submunitions in Laos today. Every year, 300 people are killed or injured by unexploded ordnances. By making these items, the villagers are able to support their families and make an income.
