Not quite what the guide books make it out to be. It's a large space selling lots of the same kind of fabric-based things in a variety of bright colours. If you expect some sort of concept store or gallery, you'll be disappointed.

We did not think that the Barefoot Cafe was necessary at the time. Perhaps we should have. Good quality woven goods inside. We bought 12 table napkins. Some lovely stuff. Worth a visit. A bit hard to find.

Nice place with decent selection but didn’t walk away with a wow factor feel. Purchased a few key chains and bracelets and one cloth school pencil case. Had high hopes for this place.

I found paradise road better stocked and less expensive. However sarees displayed here were high end stuff which may not be available elsewhere. For mens stuff I suggest look at paradise road
