“Weaving training schools are drafting new beautiful designs in conformity with the market demand as hand-weaving products in order to bring local weaving products to a new market. Similarly, new designs of gold and silver embroidery products, and traditional fabric products are also being weaved. After completion from the course, we will organize an exhibition and competition for trainees to evaluate their design works,” U Kyaw Zin Latt said.
In addition, plans are underway to open and teach a fashion design course based on traditional clothing as a research project for the promotion and development of local textile products. Currently, there are one-year textile diploma course, one-year skilled textile course, six-month course on silkwares made of 100 looms, six-month hand-weaving course and three-month gold and silver embroidery course. — ASH/TKO
