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.

  • Excellent shop with more locally manufactured items for sale than the average shop. Really good selection well worth a visit when on the Galle Road.  more »
  • Had been able to trade up the whole range of things, fabrics and clothes but contenmed me with a bit of each. Not only shopping but also an oasis of food and drink. Well worth a visit.
