The warmth colour and vibrancy of Sri Lanka is a sensory overload. The artisitic abiltity of the talented weavers is extraordinary. From hand loomed vibrant cotton shawls to multicoloured cotton cushion covers, to talented Batik artists to the Beeralu lace makers which sad to say is a art that will soon be non existent. Found myself of the beaten track in jungle environments tracking down these elusive weavers. Am working with a young designer incorporating Beeralu lace into one off shawls which hopefully will contribute in a small way to keeping this skill alive .
