Watch "Buying Back the Bombs" Video The Secret War was waged in neutral Laos between 1964 and 1973. An average of one bomb-load every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, for nine years. Of the 250 million bombs dropped, 80 million failed to detonate, leaving a deadly legacy that plagues the agrarian population today. The Philosopher's Style, by Beatrix Ost "Nothing is as it seams. Black and white is just a color. I design jewelry made from bombs detonated in Laos, turning horror into beauty." Since 2015, artist and fashion muse Beatrix Ost has brought design talent and vision to ARTICLE22’s New Luxe Line. With a shared ethos, Beatrix was inspired by the transformation story of Peacebomb. Her personal transformation story was skin cancer that left a Z-shaped scar on her forehead. Embracing this personal horror, she turned it into beauty by tattooing it light purple.

Edward Soleimani was a well regarded collector and dealer of antiques in the northeast. Born in Tehran in 1929, he immigrated to the US in the 1950's to pursue an education and earned several scientific degrees including a PhD in Chemistry from Rutgers University. He worked for a decade as an industrial chemist in both the Greater Chicago and New York areas. In the 1970's he made the transition to the antique rug business and became a student of the trade leading to a successful career in carpets and tapestries from a wide span of international markets. In his later years, he continued to build his collections and developed a sophisticated eye, particularly in tapestries, paintings and Asian art. Ed's well developed art reference library supports the detailed approach and research-based perspective he developed as a professional and collector.
