Kachin Lashi Traditional Longyi in Myanmar

This product name is Kachin Lashi Traditional Longyi and produced in Myanmar. Cotton and span seylon thread mixture designed to be art design. Cotton is the preferred material in the heat. There are also span seylon and cotton mixtures. The detail of the design is very fine breathtakingly so in fact. I was amazed when I saw how they were decorated because although the design looked embroidered, it’s actually woven in as the longyi is being made. Over the workshop there was a storehouse with finished longyi. Better souvenir than these beautiful textiles from a local business.
