“NOM VE” ‘s DEVELOPMENT

In Myanmar the material is bought already clean, it’s very practical but also it limits the work.
For exemple it’s difficult to follow the curves of an object with a round creeper because it’s a lot less flexible than the flat one and it breaks.

Otherwise, I find that the craftsmen here in Myanmar, make a finer work than in Congo but their way of weaving is different.
At the beggining I had the chance to work with a very good craftsman but who unfortunately was not independant.
Now I’ve found an independent one who is also curious and likes to work on different designs.
