Laksala is the only State owned Gift & Souvenir Boutique and was established under the National Crafts Council And Allied Institutions Act, No. 35 of 1982. Since then Laksala has witnessed numerous changes with an ever growing list of products on sale. Today Laksala operates through 13  branches located island wide and offer the widest variety of all Sri Lankan products at a reasonable price. Most importantly, Laksala enables the numerous industries that supply goods to it to stay both profitable and in business. Today you will find an eclectic blend of items ranging from selections of beautifully packaged tea and spices to, colourful batik ware to an elaborate collection of art and craft as well as the finest collection of traditional Sri Lankan Gems and Jewellery. Laksala is therefore your one stop guide and a visit to one of our stores feels like you visited ‘all of Sri Lanka’!


Brings you the Sri Lankan Culture

A wide range of souvenirs and gifts that highlight Sri Lankan arts and crafts under a state owned brand name.

As a contrast to the activity around it in the business district, this state-owned gift and souvenir store has a wide range of products that highlight traditional Sri Lankan arts and crafts – as well as pure Ceylon tea.


Laksala follows a rigorous selection process when it comes to sourcing of products for its stores. Because Laksala plays a nationally important role of fostering the arts and crafts of the island, its products are sourced from the most authentic of manufacturers. Therefore you can count on Laksala to offer you the most genuine and traditionally crafted items wherever possible. The goods are sourced from throughout the island and sometimes from multiple sources to offer you, our valued customers the very best in product and price. Over the years we have been able to increase the list of items on sale and even bring back certain product types that were all but wiped away.
