Looking for holiday inspiration? PSFK ushers in the festive season with a selection of 25 of the best presents from our Gift Guide.
Singapore-based Saught is a social business that aims to create an international community of advocates through its collaborative model, championing for peace building efforts. It produces jewelry from landmines and unexploded ordnance to support sustainability in post-conflict countries such as Cambodia.
The company collaborates with international de-mining organizations to obtain scrap metal. Designers then use their talents to create pieces and artisans from Cambodia NGO partner workshops gain income and build their skills by creating the jewelry. Each product conveys its story, so consumers are involved in the impact for social change. The profits are re-invested into further enabling post-conflict countries in their development efforts.
