Fodor's Review

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 cute fair-trade boutique are made by those with whom the NGOs work, and the result 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 little shops and a great place to pick up meaningful souvenirs.
