The country of Burma sits on the shores of the Indian Ocean, just west of Thailand, and has been experiencing an escalation of violence by the ruling military junta toward its people. Recently, a rash of violence against peaceful protesters -- many of them Buddhist monks -- has drawn global attention to the denial of basic human rights and rampant poverty which has existed in the nation for decades.
Hand-cut and polished by skilled silversmiths in Peru, our Sterling Burma Pin is a simple, gleaming representation of your awareness and observance and is well-suited to sweater, jacket, lapel -- even a backpack.
Pin measures approximately 1.5" L (3.8 cm) and has a tack-style closure. Handmade in and fair-trade imported from Peru.
