One textile design the Myanmar have loved for two hundred
years is the lun yakyaw acheik (over-hundred-shuttle acheik) design. It is
suitable for men and women. Both the weft and the warp are pure silk threads and
from over a hundred to two hundred shuttles are used according to the design to
be worked on. The weaving takes days and the fabric is thus expensive. Only the
well-to-do can afford it. But in the villages cotton is used and the design
modified to produce cheaper versions.
