  • This IS a roadside tourist trap, but it was very interesting hearing about the different types of wood and seeing how the wood from one tree could change color depending on the acidity of the solution...  more »
  • We purchased several wooden items that needed to be shipped however after months of contacting Lakruka they never arrived in the UK.  more »
  • Another one of the many roadside businesses as you travel through Sri Lanka. This on specialized in wooden products ranging from brightly coloured elephants in many sizes to very large furniture piece...  more »

  • Started of with a short 10 min presentation about the different types of wood and preparation of natural colours. You can witness the artists working. They have some excellent pieces for sale but they are very overpriced. Definitely not worth buying souvenirs here. Realised I paid twice the price, that too after bargaining.
  • A great place to come in Sri Lanka for art, carvings and furniture. They have masks, tables, chairs, chest, bowls, statues and wood carvings. Prices are fixed but you can ask for a discount. They accept most currencies. They also have an export license so you are oder pieces to ship home. You can ask for a certificate to show to customs if you buy something to take home with you.
  • Ideal place for handycrafts
  • Good place to buy different variaties carvings
  • It is somewhat of a tourist trap. This is the only place we went without reading reviews as we mentioned in the car about masks, and our driver took us here. They start off with a small tour of how they make natural colour from wood etc which is interesting.The wood work is nice and store is very nice to look at but the prices are astronomical. The same masks are available elsewhere at Laksala stores at much better prices. We felt ripped off. They say they will 'bargain' for better price. Shipping is free to any country (but you might have to pay lot of customs charges). Not for masks,but other products are well made and exclusive
