Handloom is a traditional artisanal tool that has been used by women since ancient times in Sri Lanka. The usual looms used are natural cotton and silk fibres. Saris and sarongs are usually made on the handloom and are quite beautiful when the threads are of good quality. Barefoot and Selyn sell handwoven home items like tablecloths and napkins made by women cooperatives around the island. They live off their production and when you buy from them, they make a better living.
