Yangon – The Hub

The former capital remains the capital of trade. All threads run together here. So in the past days I visited several places to understand more about the Macrosphere in which my topic is embedded. My teacher of textile analysis from Switzerland is here for a few weeks at the moment so I had the chance of coming along to the weaving workshop that she supports in creating the teaching curriculum and designs. The workshop is specialized in producing fabrics and products for everyday use, like pillow cases, bags and the like. It is beautiful to see how new designs are created here and products developed that you cannot find elsewhere – e.g. mobile phone cases with an integrated business card holder as in Myanmar the exchange of business cards definitely is a thing.
They have a showroom downtown, if you would like to visit let me know and I will pass on the contact details.
