- Team Virya

What is "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.

Virya Training Institute
Virya has successfully conducted two batches of training for free for underprivileged young girls and women, most of who are now fully employed at Virya’s studio. They are currently trained up to be design-to-delivery professionals.
We collaborate with others in the industry to raise awareness of the ethical fashion concept. Every year we join the Fashion Revolution campaigns encouraging the consumers to question who made their clothes and transparent about their supply chain.
