“Beautiful fabrics and shopping”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

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 sun beating down on our heads. My father in law sat in a chair near the koi pond and painted in his sketch book while we did some more shopping. Other than our hotels, this was one of the only calm places in Colombo. If you are looking for a peaceful cafe, you will find it here.

“Local products”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

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.

“Great place to shop for art lovers!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

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.
