AMARAPURA, well known as Yetkan-myodaw, is a town in which residents rely on the Myanmar traditional hand weaving industry. The business has quickly gained the interest of tourists. Tourists study how to manufacture the woven clothes at a workshop in Amarapura.
Thai citizens came out on top among tourists who study traditional crafts and they said Myanma-Lunyarkyaw silk cloth is famous. “I explain to them the difference of hand woven crafts between Thai and Myanmar people and demonstrate it on the tour”, said a tour guide visiting the Shwesintine silk cloth workshop. We did not contact any tour agencies but welcome all the tourists who wish to see the hand woven business. Tourists mostly come and see in November and March, said the owner of the Shwesintine silk cloth workshop.
Lunyarkaw cheit is well known as the weaver who has to warp threads harmoniously with his loom. A Lunyarkyaw silk sells for between K80,000 and K300,000.
