Seeking to use war-time waste for social good, Saught was set up by Pamela Yeo, Adeline Heng and Ng Sook Zhen in December 2010. Based in Singapore, the company uses the metal from de-activated landmines to create pieces of jewellery. The organisation employs citizens from conflict-ravaged regions, offering a source of employment for those who may have lost as a result of the fighting in their nation.
The idea for Saught is very much grounded in the idea of being able to get the message of peace out. The fundamental key was that the use of metal from war remnants could be used as a platform for people to re-tell the story of countries that are re-building themselves, and also to advocate for those who are part of a big concerted effort for post-conflict peace-building.
