Sri Lanka – Wood Carving & Silk Saris

Sri Lanka is well known for mainly Tea, Silk and Carved Wood. Zudhi took us to a workshop to learn on how they carve wood and colour it with natural dyes.

The sales guy at the store spoke 9 languages and among the languages, he spoke Tagalog (Filipino language) and Arabic. It was really impressive. So we were just conversing in my languages and I managed to get discount.

On separate day, Zudhi then took us to a silk workshop where we learnt on how the saris are made. Tim and I tried on traditional Sri Lankan outfits and eventually bought them.
