Shein Aung took us through the process of making Lacquerware with clear explanations and examples to illustrate each stage. His passion and enthusiasm towards creating quality Lacquerware are evident! He also told us how to avoid being tricked by unscrupulous Street peddlers. We really enjoyed our time there and deemed our purchases as great value since the process of creation could take up to 8 months!

we just bought quite a lot of items from this family run shop. 3 generations have made products of very good quality. worth finding this place.They were very kind to us and helped us ship all our good, which is sometimes complicated. we hope it all come in great shape and nothing will be missing from the items we bought. this family seems honest and genuine.we had just been dropped at some huge compound for tourist buses but luckily i had done my research on lacquerware and came to this place.

We arrived at Jasmine Lacquer and were greeted with a smile, we met their whole family and Win showed us the entire process of how some of the pieces were created. The prices may be a little higher than other workshops or markets, but just like anything in life, you get what you pay for. These pieces could be handed down for generations. Take the time to go here and learn about the process and qualities. Unbelievably beautiful art at a very decent price!

I visited Jasmine family lacquerware today. It is a real family business.

They were infinitely patient and on of the sons explained the entire process with examples. It was really a 20 minute private class.

There was no pressure to buy; there is a small well stocked showroom and I bought a beautiful little box for myself. Which they wrapped so well.
I,m only sorry it’s so far from New York or I would be a regular customer

Family very friendly to provide explanations on lacquareware process. We enjoyed the explanations very much.

Shop is small with a lot of options to choose from. Prices are very reasonable. Designs are more traditional with characters.
