Exquisite collection of artifacts, clothes, gift items, etc. Very artistic collection of stuff and pleasant ambience. Naturally, it's a bit expensive, but well worth a visit if you're looking to pick up something unusual.

A shop where I was overwhelmed what to buy. There are so many nice things to get, little stuffed toys, booklets, books, fabrics etc... I'm already regretting I didn't buy more. I'm hoping they open an online store

A riot of colours is what their Galle store is! But sadly its hugely over priced, even for handmade goods only store. Was not easy to pick up something from the store which was value for money!

I'm not sure I've ever been in a store in which nearly every single item in it is marketed, successfully, toward me and my tastes. I want to buy everything in it. No, it's not cheap, but the textiles are of much higher quality and sharper design than other shops around Colombo. Nothing against those shops -- some are really... More

Yes, a bit high on the price side but the quality of items we purchased was equally high. Comparable to Luv SL in overall quality but a completely different shop ambiance as well as inventory. Shop at both!

Based on the reviews had high expectations but was disappointed. Many of the items were overpriced - I am always happy to pay for quality and hand crafted work but it wasn't clear where they source their products from and why a set of 6 napkins and table mats would cost $60.

These local store has the most beautiful selection of fabrics, shirts and dresses, we bought a beautiful wall hanging, that is the most wonderful selection of great sri lankan colors. Only disappointment was they didn't have online ordering when we visited

Barefoot is definitely a worth while spot to check out. It feels VERY Sri Lankan, with sarongs, artwork, and books on Sri Lankan art and history it is a good spot to pick something up to take home with you. The food is also excellent! 5 stars!
