Selyn is Sri Lanka's only fair-trade guaranteed handloom company that engages the traditional Sri Lankan community of handloom weavers in bringing to you products made of 100% cotton and infinite measures of skill and devotion.
We produce 100% natural cotton fabrics that are transformed into toys, childrens' accessories, educational and interactive toys, home accessories, household textiles and linens, garments, jewllery and many other products. These wonderful products go into the local and export markets and can be found within Sri Lanka, the European Union, the US and parts of Asia.
Our fundamental values stems from the very foundation of our organization. We are primarily committed to quality and to innovative design. Our dye house gives you all the colours of a rainbow and at our handloom workshops we weave a myriad of fabrics which become home textiles, garments and toys. Our local showrooms also house a beautiful variety of handicrafts inspired by Sri Lanka's traditional industries and modified to suit modern tastes and trends.
Throughout this entire process of colour and design, we are also strongly committed to our people. We provide a creative space for skilled artisans; men, women and youth from rural parts of Sri Lanka, to engage their skills in a productive and efficient manner in order to help them improve their living standards. We at Selyn think outside the box and have established over 16 workshops in handloom villages in the rural outskirts of the Northwestern, Eastern and Southern provinces of Sri Lanka in an attempt to move away from a traditional ‘headquarter-based workshop model’ to one which our artisans can reach within the comfort of their own homes. In this way we hope not only to empower them financially but also create a way of life within which they are comfortable.
Selyn is more than just a handloom company; We are a Sri Lankan Community.
