Arts and Crafts

weaving-art-01

Traditional weaving art is one of Myanmar's crafts. It is an honoured handicraft handed down from generation to generation. The Myanmar makes their clothes on these handlooms. Since long days ago, cotton is grown in rural areas to be used to make clothes on the traditional looms. This tradition is still practised in those rural areas. To get a longyi, threads are dyed to their desired colour and wound on spindles.

Then, these spindles are arranged accordingly to colour in order to obtain the desired design. Then, weaving work is started. Here, they are weaving women's longyi in all sorts of floral designs which Myanmar women are fond of. Damsels who are weaving use both their heads and legs skilfully in making beautiful artistic weaving-art-02cloths. Myanmar hand-made cotton clothes, which are good for one's health, are sold at reasonable prices.

We invite you to come to Myanmar and see for yourself the traditional way of how these hand-made clothes are made and try them on yourself and relish the feeling of comfort and freeness case.
