Introduction

Handicrafts have a long history, and each country has its own traditional creations. This site is set up to create awareness on handicrafts from Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is famous for a variety of crafts spanning from jewelry to wood carvings and exquisite lace work, vibrant batiks, traditionally woven rush and reed items, colourful masks, finely crafted tableware and bed linen. Sri Lankan handicrafts are mostly produced in a cottage industry setting, and the technical skills involved in producing these handicrafts are passed from generation to generation.
