Turquoise Mountain

in Yangon

Reviving traditional crafts, including jewellery making and textile weaving, is the mission of this NGO which occupies a beautifully restored, heritage Chinese shophouse. It's possible to watch the artisans trained to produce pieces using gold and semiprecious stones, designed by ethical jeweller Pippa Small among others.

Turquoise Mountain has also been involved in several high-profile architectural restoration projects around the city.
