A decrease of tourists to Bagan this wet season has forced lacquer ware dealers to rely soly on hotels as a point of sale, according to shopkeepers. Hotels not only sell them but also use them to serve food from.
Hotels from Yangon and Mandalay are also ordering Bagan laquer ware.
“We’re only processing large-scale orders, hotels are employing the use of lacquer ware products for more than just decoration these days. The number of hotels making orders with us has increased as a result,” said Ko Aung Kyaw Htun, owner of the U Ba Nyein lacquer ware store in Bagan.
The creation of a laquer ware product can take anywhere between four-six months with the process involving bamboo, wood and wooden dies.—Myitmakha News AgencyLQ4 2 LQ3 2
