A great enterprise mixing empowerment of local groups with modern design. Items with a unique flavour of Myanmar that you'll keep around and use for years keeping the memories of your amazing time there (work or pleasure) fresh and vivid... well worth a visit.

Hello- I'm wondering if the date on this review is perhaps inaccurate? Did you actually visit the shop on May 8, 2016? I don't think that's possible. When was it you visited?
