Myanmar has a rich history of textile production, from backstrap to frame loom weaving, and over 135 ethnic groups, many with their own textile tradition. Mandalay’s artisans are known for producing acheik weavings, an intricate technique that requires exceptional skills and patience; the lotus weaving around Inle Lake produces a rare and unique product; and the backstrap woven patterns of Chin State tell mythical stories passed across generations.

Turquoise Mountain is now working with female weavers from Chin State, Mandalay, Kachin State and Northern Rakhine, supporting them to learn new skills and produce textiles rooted in heritage but fit for today’s international markets.
