If you visit one shop, visit this one. Beautiful items, stunningly bright cottons. Plenty to browse and all made to exceptionally high quality standards. After you're done you can sit on the terrace and have a drink or a spot of lunch in this chic little environment. Perfect place to buy table linen... Photo albums, notebooks, crockery, cutlery, jewellery, clothing,... More

Barefoot has a great selection of Sri Lanka fabrics and crafts and I bought a few. We were surprised when we had finished our shopping, to find a shaded cafe in the back of the store. It made us forget we were in the chaos of Colombo....no tuk tuk drivers pestering us, touts bothering us about something or other, or... More

For Sri Lankan textiles and tasteful modern use of traditional crafts Barefoot is the best shopping in Sri Lanka. We bought soaps, table napkins and lengths of fabric to remind us of the colours of Sri Lanka.

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
