Shwe Sin Tai Silkwear is a workshop that specialises in traditional hand-worked silk weaving. The workshop is located in the Amarapura area of Mandalay and it is famous for the hand-woven silk fabrics and traditional Burmese clothing. When I was traveling in Myanmar, I was fascinated by the traditional Burmese clothing. I thought it was really beautiful, especially with the vibrant colours and patterns. I wanted to try it on and possibly get my own set. My local friend Min Min took me to Shwe Sin Tai Silkwear in Mandalay just before it closes. I managed to see some workers weaving intricate patterns on the silk materials and there were some apprentices learning from the more expereinced. I was able to try on a few traditional Burmese clothing and I was very happy that I managed to get two sets of top and patterned longyi. Longyi is the traditional skirt that both Burmese men and women wear. I thought the design of Longyi that I got was simple yet comfortable. I really liked how mine are bright in colours with tiny detailed pattern.
I hope you enjoyed the images of this unique silkwear workshop. As for now, Happy Jetsetting! ✈
