Celebrating Myanmar’s Weavers

Celebrating Myanmar’s Weavers

By Turquoise Mountain- 19th September 2023

Join Turquoise Mountain and the Shoreditch design community to learn about the extraordinary textiles from Myanmar – and the artisans and stories behind them – over drinks and bites from Honey & Co.

Also available to view is a specially curated display of heritage-inspired textiles, homewares, jewellery and lacquerware.

Turquoise Mountain was founded by His Majesty King Charles to revive historic areas and traditional crafts, and provide jobs and skills where cultural heritage is under threat.  

Myanmar has an extraordinarily rich and diverse textile heritage from backstrap to frame loom weaving, and over 135 ethnic groups, many with their own textile traditions. These pieces tell the story of Turquoise Mountain’s work in Myanmar, creating jobs for hundreds of people in the craft sector as one of the most powerful and practical ways to bring incomes to women and their families.   

Through artisan support, technical training, product development assistance, and business training, Turquoise Mountain is helping artisans across the country to help them promote a new vision of Myanmar.
