A good place to buy handicrafts and some good quality linen clothes and materials. Found it a little expensive compared to other places and you would get much cheaper stuff in India. Better too. Has a nice little cafe too. Unfortunately not a great choice of beers. A must as most people would shop around noon.

Its definitely worth a visit. The store is very large and has many different things to offer: clothes, books, any kind of selfmade tablecloths, napkins etc. The staff is very nice and endeavors. For the prices I guess you just have to compare - we found salt and pepper elephants far cheaper in a different store but some some things... More

This place had a bit of everything. Good value and quality stuff especially if you like colour! Everything on 2 floors and I spent two hours in air conditioning, for the most part browsing, sampling all the body lotions, trying on clothes and buying small gifts to take home! And to top it off there is this great little courtyard... More

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.
