Burmaâ? "s insulation has promoted self-sufficiency â and this has spread far beyond shelter, nutrient and oil. Here there is a handicraft for everyone â from roll cigars and woven silks to silversmiths and green-goldpresses. Lotuses are one of the more uncommon handicrafts â often from the Kayan wives, many of whom still wearing brassy thimbles.
They are dyed - often with nature colours - and weaved onto hand-made wood weaving machines. The support of the craftsmen is encouraging the continuation of tradition â and providing revenue for municipalities with few alternative options, which means that this is one of the best things to do in Burma.
