Lace Weaving


Another one of Sri Lanka’s lost arts is lace weaving, a handicraft that was introduced to the country by the Portuguese. You may come across groups of women sitting outside their homes, busily weaving various products including clothes, table mats and more all out of lace. Like stilt fishing however, this is a rapidly diminishing craft, so the sooner you get to experience it, the better. Lace weaving is known to pick up its pace during peak season, so tourists get a chance to grab something for themselves when heading back.
