In Myanmar, Turquoise Mountain has trained hundreds of artisans across jewellery, textiles and other crafts to set the gold standard for the craft industry. Our jewellery workshop is selling lines designed by UK designer Pippa Small and others, and Myanmar artisans are now supplying high-end products to international luxury hotels and clients.

In 2016, Turquoise Mountain completed the restoration of 491-501 Merchant Street in Yangon’s Historic Downtown, the first done to international standards, training 250 people in building and conservation work. In 2019 we completed the regeneration of the landmark Tourist Burma building in 2019, training well over 500 builders and engineers and bringing a historic building back into public use.
