The controversial issue to discuss is the name of the designer. All covers mentioned U Thiha Lwin as a designer of the stamps, but as far as I understand, he is the sponsor or donor of the photos for the usage in stamp production. Interestingly, the Shan man playing the Shan pot drum is identified as U Thiha Lwin.
During the design stage of postmark, U Wai Zin Paing brainstormed the postmark design which can reflect the theme and Myanma's tradition. He designed the postmark with Spinning wheel used in making the threads for the preparation of looming the traditional cloths. Meanwhile, U Thiha Lwin proposed Myanmar Post that it is more convenience to use long postmark with wavy lines (like a roller canceller), suggesting one impression cancel all the stamps.
