Heritage Craftsmanship of Myanmar

Heritage Craftsmanship of Myanmar

By Turquoise Mountain- 16th September - 22nd September 2023

Experience the extraordinary craftsmanship of artisans from Myanmar, with 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.
