Fairtrade Artisanship From Around The World
Slate + Salt’s selection of polished, hand-cast brass jewelry has a transformative story to tell. Turning war into peace, recycled brass bomb shells and bullets from the war in Cambodia are crafted into ethical jewelry by ironwork artisans from an underprivileged community in the Kandal Province, near Phnom Penh.
