Turquoise Mountain Myanmar

Turquoise Mountain was founded by HRH Prince Charles to regenerate historic areas and traditional crafts, to create jobs, skills and a renewed sense of pride. It set up in Myanmar in 2014 to lead practical heritage led regeneration projects in Yangon’s historic Downtown, as well as work in the revitalization of traditional crafts. It completed its first historic building restoration project in April 2016, and has formed a partnership with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s Suu Foundation to work in artisanal jewellery.
