Time Out says
A multitude of colours and patterns at the Dutch Hospital!
Cocooned within the even-toned interior of the old Dutch Hospital Precinct is a Barefoot outlet. As you leave the outdoors and enter the store, your eyes are greeted by the colours of summer.
The bright red of the anthurium, a peacock blue, the blazing orange of the setting sun and the emerald green paddy liven each corner of the vibrant store. Barefoot specialises in quality handwoven fabrics made exclusively in Sri Lanka. The materials here are 100% cotton and some fabrics are neatly handwoven with a mix of silk.
Each cloth is designed with care by the design team of Barefoot, who are inspired by the Sri Lankan land and seascapes. These extraordinary fabrics are then transformed into vibrant home linen, exotic clothing, accessories and cute toys. Table mats and napkins in bright colours, elegant cushion covers and bed linen are all a part of the collection.
Displayed across the cozy store are a range of colourful and engaging soft toys, such as elephants, birds, fish and lizards that will liven up your child’s playroom and inspire their creative imagination. A bestseller at the store are the vibrant recycled paper notebooks that come in many sizes and make for an ideal gift.
Classic elegance is the theme of Barefoot’s fashion line, which revives traditional methods of design and tailoring. Pick up a modest Barefoot sarong and stand out at your next party in the Island. A multi-coloured scarf will add a touch of sophistication to the simplest of outfits. The stylish accessories displayed here are quirky, contemporary designs re-imagined in cloth.
From handy bags to pencil cases, scrunchies to hats; Barefoot has it all in store. An item purchased at Barefoot surely guarantees quality and longevity.
