Pettah World Market

Olcott Mawatha

Textile Heaven at Colombo’s Pettah Market

Your goal at this Sri Lankan flea market should be focused: Skip the poorly constructed clothing and head straight to the fabrics. You’ll find acres and acres of bright, bold, hand-loomed textiles to bring home, where you can have your tailor transform them into one-of-a-kind curtains and clothes. —Cynthia Rosenfeld
