  • Quite nice stuff, very similar to all fair trade shops in Europe. Some beautiful fabrics.
  • A fair trade shop that tries to make an impact - if you have no time to go and support local communities in their villages, this shop is a good alternative. They have locally made nice things and while some are very beautiful they for sure come at higher price than from Bogyoke Market. Take time to peek in the shop, it's definitely worth it!
  • The shop's upstairs, quite similar to many indie shops in HK. Products they sell are pretty much similar to the shop (I forgot its name) opposite to "Rangoon Tea House" with a tiny difference of stock and price. Note: some products are also available in Yangon International Airport (after security check) with a slightly-higher price (e.g. 5000K in the shop while 5USD in airport). The staff were really having fun there, decorating, preparing cake and playing guitar. Guess it was someone's birthday that day.
  • Cute little shop with a good cause - check it out if you are in the area. It's on the third floor at number 89 (easier to find the number than the shop).
  • Yangon Handicrafts. Some interesting recycled art.
