THE BAREFOOT STORY:

Back in 1958, a lady by the name of Barbara Sansoni developed BAREFOOT. As a colourist and artist, she used her skills to help young Sri Lankan women, who had little schooling and no skills. Now, BAREFOOT, a success story, has become a premier textile design company exporting to all parts of the world whilst helping those in need.

All BAREFOOT products are fully handmade from start to finish. The yarn is hand dyed, using premium Swiss colourfast and non-toxic dyes, then hand woven and handmade into various products. The high quality workmanship is assured, as no time is asserted on the weavers and needlewomen. They are not cheap substitutes for machinery, which explains the relative cost of BAREFOOT products, but these painstakingly handmade products will last a lifetime and will provide a constant reminder of how fortunate we are. BAREFOOT products are by no means mass-produced and no two pieces are the same.

BAREFOOT is not a charity organisation. The workers receive an honest wage for the work they do and can earn a living with dignity. Through the Fair Trade Program, they can support themselves and provide food and shelter for their families. Today, the cloth from BAREFFOT is in demand for its utility and appearance. Creative designers are encouraged to be innovative and stretch their creative intelligence.
