  • Really sweet and friendly. Offered to take our picture. We will be visiting him and his family soon!  more »
  • Around Bagan, our motorcycle tire, a heat of hell were pulled in the middle of the road. Approached a boy on a motorcycle interested to see what we spent, we explain with details the problem and directed us towards a nearby workshop. While the matter is arranged told us about the local economy the way in which tourism impact in the economy of families and very close, his family and village, dedicated to the tradition of lacquers. Unfortunately the main business they ended up taking the large stores that had their agreements with local guides and therefore his people and his family came to very little money and very little tourism. East boy Cookin Mahou stayed with us until it resolved the problem of the bike and invited us to walk through their village and knew the entire traditional lacquers. Without hesitation we follow him and live with his family, taking you, and knowing all the lacquer manufacturing process step by step. At any time we feel pressured to buy anything, but seeing the value and beauty of their products we couldn't resist us to bring us two boxes at a super good price! We recommend if you are by Bagan pass to visit the family of Jasmine, an experience that no doubt will bring them to the reality of local family and offered the possibility of bringing disadvantaged economies, and lxs verdaderxs artesanxs holding ancestral traditions. Yesu timare!

  • Exquisite workmanship explained by a friendly owner. True Burmese artisans that provides you the opportunity to see the incredible amount of time required to make these objects. We bought a few pieces but there is no pressure to purchase if you don’t want to.
  • Highly interesting visit. We do now have a good understanding of high quality lacquers. Our guide was friendly and took time to show and explain all the required production steps as well as the differences with cheaper products.
  • me and my bf bought many lacquerware in Jasmine. they told to me many stories about their products. they have pride on their products. and if you buy many things, you can get discount. and if you visit here by yourself(not by taxi driver), you can get discount. because they don't need to pay for commision to taxi driver. i think the lacquerware have good quality. and i am satisfied with these products
  • Excellent Lacquerware workshop and shop. The lacquerware here is genuine and beautifully carved. You can watch all the different processes that goes into making the lacquerware and the workshop owner will explain everything to you. If you would like to buy I suggest you go alone rather than have a driver take you. The driver will take a commission for taking you so you get less of a discount on the lacquerware.
  • This was an amazing experience!!! Really suggest you go here if you are in Bagan. The Jasmine family makes traditionel laquereware by hand at there house and has done it through generations. The son Shein Aung warmly greated us and took time explaining us how they make the laquereware, what to look for and the different proces. He showed us around the workshop and had a smaller room with beautiful laquereware you could buy from. The prices were a lot cheaper than at the bigger stores a long the main road. You also get a better price if you come without tourguide because they charge commision. So glad we went here!! This is not the same experience as visiting the handycraft workshops you visit by boat in inle lake which have much more forced and touristy feel. This one you choose yourself and seems much more authentic..
