    I saw the great reviews for Salies and wanted a ring with precious stones making. I liaised with Isam whilst I was still in England, via what's app, sending photos of what I wanted and my budget. It was made, they sent me photos and I collected and paid for it today in Colombo. Really pleased with their craftmanship. I had a modest budget and the team there were so down to earth and helpful. It's a great way to remember your trip to Sri Lanka: having some jewellery made featuring their wonderful precious stones. Highly recommended.

    I saw a beautiful evil eye bracelet in a picture and wanted something similar with different stones so asked Fazal via email if he could make it. He made it in record time so that my mother could bring it back to the UK with her and it is so beautiful! I love it. Great service as always and one of the many reasons I always go back!

    I found this shop after a person on the street advised me to go there because it was supposedly the best souvenirs shop in town, and I was not disappointed! Great choice of quality products all produced in Sri Lanka. I found the presents to take home, and to give away. If you fancy “colonial” decoration style there is a lot to find there, made with great craftsmanship and taste. Be patient, and take time to browse, many beautiful things are displayed in the back of the shop :) but you will definitely find here most of the things Sri Lanka has to offer.
    The staff was very knowledgeable, patient and accommodative, and when it became dark outside, even arranged me a cab, so I felt very safe! Overall great experience and I may only highly recommend it to everyone visiting Colombo!

    Urban Island is a beautiful shop. It’s well laid out and organized. There is so much to look at and the prices are reasonable comparing to what I would get at home. Knowing I am supporting a local Sri Lankan business makes us feel good too. I bought a few pieces of clothing, made by young and upcoming designers. All made from linen and cotton. We also bought couple of blankets and a cushion pillow as gifts. Will come back on our next trip. They also started shipping which I will definitely take as range of.

    Loved this high quality craft and linen store! We hadn't really found other cool things to buy in Sri Lanka and this was by far our favorite store - ended up walking out with a full two bags of home items, spices, clothes and authentic Sri Lankan things to bring home. Highly recommend!

    The place is good with a lot of natural herbal and spices, you should have a walk without taking any tuk tuk as they won’t get the commission and you get a discount instead.

    Was disappointed. I had heard so much about it. There was some construction going on. The place looked really small as well. No clue why people rave about it.

    Our tuk tuk driver brought us here. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted - white gold sapphire earrings. Rahman pulled out exactly what fit that description, no nonsense, no wasting our time. I found what I wanted but with a green stone, so I asked if he could swap out sapphires. Which he did, and delivered much more quickly than promised. A great price, and a very happy result!

    This is an absolute must. The quality is excellent. The colours bright and vibrate. The kids toys are original. The table wear is practical and unique. I so love this shop and their principles of fair trade. Loved it so much i visited their store in Columbo and Kurunegala.

    I recently visited the Lakpahana Handcraft store. What an amazing handicraft centre. It has many rooms of different local handicrafts. An incredible selection of different items. Well worth a visit.
