Our tour group called at this establishment which is set up to help disadvantaged women from the Yangon Region to help/assist make goods for sale in Pomelo's shop. After climbing two very step staircases you are confronted by the most wonderful display of hand made arts and crafts - the goods are so eye catching and make wonderful gifts at very reasonable prices one could spend a good couple of hours exploring all the nooks and crannies. It's a not for profit group and all sale proceeds go back to the people who made the product. You must pay a visit to this outlet
