Myanmar earthenware handicrafts thriving amidst high local, global demand

Daw Zar Zar Myint, the owner of the earthenware business Pyone Pan Thar Family in Aungmyaythazan Township, Mandalay, mentioned that Myanmar earthenware handicrafts are trading well due to local and global demand.
Due to increased demand, there is better trading of earthenware products compared to last year. There are over a hundred kinds of earthenware, and they are also being sold to Thailand via Myawady and Kawthoung.
“Our earthenware business is thriving this year because Myanmar handicrafts are not fading away; instead, they are making a comeback in the market. We sell these earthenware handicrafts as creative seasonal items year after year. Our products include flower vases, various types of earthenware piggy banks, traditional Myanmar earthenware toys, other children’s toys, and scales. Drinking earthenware pots, traditional Myanmar earthenware toys, and piggy banks are in high demand throughout the year. Currently, we are crafting Thingyan pots for the upcoming Thingyan period,” she added.
The mentioned earthenware handicrafts are trading well this year, and the prices range from at least K50 to K1,000. Items priced over K2,000 include piggy banks at K1,700 to K2,600, Buddha statues at K5,000 to K7,000 for one statue, and flower vases at K400, K500, and over K2,000 in the market. — Maung Aye Chan/TRKM
