Check out the much-lauded textiles at Barefoot, a shop established by Sri Lankan designer Barbara Sansei. Renowned for her vibrant, hand-woven fabrics, Sansei's creations include bedsheets, tablecloths, and other home decor, as well as quality clothing items with striking geometric designs. The thoughtfully laid-out store also features locally made crafts and a bookshop. Afterwards, admire the artworks in the gallery and relax in the courtyard cafe.

Bellissimo store con oggetti di ottima fattura e altrettanto buon gusto. Da lodare l'iniziativa di dare spazio ad artigiani locali e, se questo comporta una spesa maggiore, ben vengano i costi più ele... more »Beautiful store with excellent workmanship and equally good taste. The initiative to give space to local artisans should be commends and, if this entails a higher expenditure, the costs are well higher than the stalls!!! On the other hand, however, these prices are not comparable to those of the West... Very pleasant lunch in the courtyard, again with good quality products and great value. If I ever went back to Colombo, I would definitely come back here too!
