Our Artisans


Our Glass Blowers work in Yangon. Here's their story:

 

Our Weavers are from Chin State. 

This is Ma Hla Shwe. She is 42 and is the most experienced of our weavers.

This is Khine Khine Oo. She is 36 and has a beautiful eye for detail.

And this is Mu Mu Win, the youngest of our weavers at 30. 

Mu Mu Win

She has learnt everything she knows from the elder two.

Our Woodworkers are from Bago. Ko Lin Aung was brought up on his father's workshop and still runs it today. He has 6 woodworkers, and has trained them from scratch.
