- Team Virya
The term Vīrya is of Sanskrit origin (in Burmese, Wiriya) and can be translated as "energy", "diligence", "enthusiasm", or "effort". At Virya Myanmar these are the kind of traits that we aim to inspire in our fellow women.
Virya is a social business with an aim to promote ethical fashion in Myanmar. We offer opportunities to young, passionate women in Myanmar, training them in tailoring and design and providing them with decent renumeration and working conditions. We create casual, smart casual, and formal or special occasion wear.
Everything we make always incorporates high quality design, patterns, and tailoring. Fabrics and accessories are all made locally in Myanmar and wherever possible are sourced from fellow social enterprises wherever possible.
