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.

  • Lovely shop filled with charming hand crafted wares. Great selection of books, posters, and postcards. Nicely priced woven and dyed pillow covers (LKR850-1600), beautifully packaged natural facial and body care times, and a relaxed outdoor cafe serving coffees and cocktails. Don't miss it, even just to browse the colorful shop!
  • Lovely place to buy craftware and souveniers and gifts to take that have a sri lankan touch them. Also the restaurant is quite good.. Worth stopping by just to have a meal even.
  • Sunday afternoon - Barefoot is THE place to go to! If there were 10 stars - I would easily give to the Sunday Jazz :)
  • Beautiful products throughout the store. There are gorgeous textiles here. A wonderful place to visit for gifts.
  • The place looks maicured and lacks the usual lankan warmth. I had been expected a vibrant mix of presentation and hospitality.
