  • One of the few shops in Colombo, where you can buy trade fair products. In addition to the traditional clothing such as saris and sarongs, there are also dresses, pants, blouses, scarves, children's clothing and toys and other odds and ends. Very colorful and high-quality products. For Colombo probably rather high-priced, cost the clothing equivalent to €10 to €15, but very cheap compared to European prices. What I found particularly exciting: you can buy the fabric as a metre. You get to a high-quality, hand-woven fabric in Austria only to the five to tenfold price. Cotton, linen and silk in vibrant colours. A pity that my case is so small ;-) Unfortunately there are many pieces of clothing in all sizes, small cut especially for Europeans. I wear a 36/38 and had to take L. The understanding of English was rather difficult, but then but get what I wanted.

  • A lovely fair-trade shop. They sell the typical woven products found in many Sri Lankan shops but they produce their products ethically and empower the women that produce all the products. They have a great selection of articles. Perfect for souvenirs that allow you to give back to the local community. Will definitely visit again.
  • Splendid place to shop unique hand looms, especially for ladies, bit expensive but worthwhile if you are looking for quality and uncommon designs. Staff is friendly and assistive. Guess quality is up-to export standards. Happy shopping..!
  • Very nice collections. Prepared by women in Kurunegala. The colors are natural dye and are imported from Germany. The raw material are largely from South Asia. The team is professional.
  • Good products. Bit expensive. Best for hand loomed products.
  • Lovely handloom toys, pillow cases and over home stuff. New cute handbags & linen clothing.
