Sri Lanka, Barefoot Ceylon, Weaving
Barefoot Ceylon is a Sri Lankan brand combining the craft of weaving with the art of design. In 1964, Barbara Sansoni was invited to design for women learning to weave in a convent workshop just north of Colombo. Today, Barefoot has a band of dedicated designers providing training, designs, and raw materials. Along with the fabric, linen and furnishing, they also design and produce soft toys, wall furniture, bags, clothes and sarongs. At their core is the design and production of handwoven cloth.
