    Very interesting experience
    An extremely interesting experience - we were told how the cycle of silk worms to make clothing. I had no idea that silk is made from cocoons! Worth a visit. It doesn’t take more than 20 mins to go through the factory.

    Natural silk factory
    The people working there are really nice and welcoming. They show you around (one can get a closer „behind the scene“) and explain the production process. The fabrics and designs are beautiful and the collection is quite big. It for sure is worth visiting when you stay in Galle!

    Good silk with good value for money
    Very nice place with helpful people offering good quality silk. I ordered customized shirt and when it turned out that it cannot not be ready until my leave, they proposed me sending it to my home country. Prices as in Poland but better value for money. Fully recommend.

It was a great place to explore the silk. The staff there is super friendly and so knowledgeable about the silk. Genuine product and highly recommended to get a good silk material or the the dresses. Feel so great to get a great and genuine product from here. Also gave some good price.

I visited Natural Silk Factory several times during my stay in Sri Lanka - firstly just to look at the process of making and shop for myself but shorty I felt in love with this place and decided to collaborate and start my own fashion brand. I was always treated with much care and patient when presented a new idea of a quite difficult model I wanted to make. I think nothing is impossible to be made by them. Tailor is so talented and all the staff that I’ve met is so nice and helpful. One of the best experiences in SL! Thank you all!

We visited silk factory almost at the end of our trip and it was absolutely great experience. We have bought a lot of silk (different pieces for dresses and scarves). Silk is so gentle and luxury looking, totally recommend buying some staff there. Price is around 25 $ per meter (width is 1.14 and 1.4 meter) and it’s really cheap for a such quality. Be aware, that of course you may buy silk at local market cheaper, but it’s fake silk. I wish you a good shopping:)
