One of the places I visited in Myanmar was a weaving factory on the edge of Lake Inle.  Here, girls worked on ancient, noisy, wooden hand looms like something from a 19th Century English mill.  The cloth they produced - using silk, wool or thread made from lotus stems - was intricate and beautiful.
