We got stopped outside a temple and given their card.. And just based on curiosity, we checked them out. They didn't press us to buy anything, just wanted their work to be seen. Boy, they're good! You should check them out when you're in Bagan!

This really is a family enterprise. They are lovely people. The process of making laquareware was explained to us. No pressure to buy at all, but why not when the quality is great. Better if you go independently as you get non-comission rates.

You may have seen lacquerware elsewhere in Asia, however, none will appear so uniquely handcrafted with personal artisan touches. Good value as prices are reasonable and products sealed properly to enable entry in to Australia.

The owner's son was very patient on explaining to me what they do and how they do it. It is very interesting at first but it really took a long time for him to finish his speech.

Small shop but indeed the quality is better than other souvenir shops on the street. Not sure if it’s a sales pitch but at least the man gave me an hour long step by step explanation on how to make a bamboo cup.

I have done this. Jasmine does have a shipping company but it’s not cheap. When I shipped out of there i used DHL. I had no issues.
