Fodor's Expert Review Pomelo

Yangon (Rangoon) Crafts Fodor's Choice

Pomelo supports nonprofits in Myanmar that work with disadvantaged groups, including families in poverty, those with HIV, the mentally and physically disabled, and the homeless. The goods at this fair-trade boutique are made by those with whom the NGOs work, and the results are fantastic. Sein Na Garr Glass Factory, for example, makes its beautiful vases with recycled glass bought from Yangon's garbage collectors. Lovely beaded jewelry comes from the children at Hlaing Thar Yar Disability Centre. Action for Public works with women and children with HIV, and the sweet stuffed animals and chic wallets and ornaments that dot Pomelo were expertly sewn by them. This is one of Yangon's loveliest shops and a great place to pick up meaningful souvenirs.
