Description

The luntaya acheik in the photo could be made in the Konbaung period (1752-1885), the interviewee said. At the moment, I want to weave this design. Why don't I weave it? The answer is that the customer isn't like the design. If buy, I will sell off the discount it. Some customer from abroad often orders the ancient design like this.

Almost all the customers from Myanmar always buy the famous design or a new design which is popular now. If they wear the ancient or old-fashioned design, they feel and believe that it paid a lot of money, is out of date, and won't be beautiful. They aren't interested and don't know the seven elementary designs and 33 ropes which should be involved in drawing design for luntaya acheik because they are mainly focused on the new design.
