Mingalabar and Welcome!

Much like it’s namesake fruit, Pomelo is vibrant, bursting with an energy and vitality that is unique to Myanmar.

Pomelo is a Fair Trade marketplace supporting social businesses throughout Myanmar. Pomelo connects design and impact: every purchase made contributes to social and economic change in some of Myanmar's most marginalised communities and helps to support unique skills and craftsmanship.

Pomelo aims to make lasting impact by providing its artisan partners with training and education, as well as economic reward. Proudly supporting a diverse range of groups and products, handpicked and nurtured by the Pomelo team. The products range from reclaimed teak candle holders, created by former street children who have been trained in traditional carpentry, to handmade soap, created by refugee women in Kachin State. Join the movement: design for change, by visiting the Pomelo retail outlets in Yangon and Bagan, where your purchase contributes towards a brighter future for the country and it’s people.
