“I not going back there again!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Went there a few times to look for gifts. however, i was unable to find anything that i like. maybe coming from Asia i was being spoiled by selections from India, Vietnam , Thailand and Indonesia. Had an unpleasant experience yesterday . The Sales Assistant (the same one always - unfriendly) was so rude! I left immediate . Don't think i will go there ever again!

“Is Muya fair trade or not?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2011

I visited Muya PLC last week and found the textiles beautiful and the compound shady and inviting. They do not take credit cards. From the web site I thought they were fair trade, and in fact the workers are in rather comfortable surroundings but some of the weavers told me that they are paid very very low wages and they work very long hours. I dont know what to think about this.

“Not easy to find, but worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2010

The Muya workshop is a beautiful arrangement of a showroom and workrooms for traditional Ethiopian textiles and crafts. Even my Ethiopian coworkers compliment me on the scarves and furniture I have for them! Definitely the number one place to shop for high quality souvenirs to bring home to your family and friends!
