Weaving mill at Innbawkon (Inpawkhon) on Lake Inle, Shan State. 83 women were employed there in September 1998 producing complex, multi-colour silk ikat woven lengths. The finished woven lengths were going not only to Yangon for sale but also internationally for the fashion market. In 1998 the mill was owned and managed - with active input into the colours and designs - by the widow of the man whose family owned the mill. He had died in the previous year, apparently when he had received the wrong medicine from his doctor.
