Barefoot products are designed in Sri Lanka. Every item is specially designed for Barefoot, and is made either by workers at home or by local artists and craftsmen. There are no factories and no production lines; each worker is responsible for the quality of his or her final product.
They teach skills and strive for quality from their hand weavers or stitchers. Their workers are not cheap substitute for machinery. This is why Barefoot products cost a little more, but last much longer. They work almost exclusively with women, a tradition started by Barbara Sansoni 50 years ago. They work in small workshops, most of which are located in the countryside. They take work to them rather than expecting them to spend long hours travelling.
Barefoot uses the inspiration of land and seascapes, earth, plants and animals of Sri Lankan in abstract geometry with vivid colour to produce beautiful and useful textiles. The cotton, silk and wool yarns are hank dyed and woven by hand. The team of designers directed by Barbara Sansoni also designs their own range of clothes, bags, household linen and toys made from their textiles. The Barefoot household linen collection is designed with close attention to colour, texture and fabric. It is finished with refined techniques called Italian double and single hem stitch, which require meticulous needlework and skill. Specifically designed soft furnishing such as Barefoot banners provide a practical, colorful and modern way to organize and live in today’s world.
