Sri Lanka Design Festival 2012 (SLDF) invites hoteliers, architects and interior designers to attend a preview of products designed and developed for the hotel industry using craft at an exhibition presented in partnership with Sri Lanka Tourism.

The exhibition opens on the evening of 15 November featuring design integrated craft products from across the island, highlighting the efforts of over 500 local artisans through interior, hotel ware and textile products, and will remain open till 18 November at the Mount Lavinia Hotel.

The opening evening will also feature a craft fashion show featuring products like beach wraps, shawls and fashion collections made out of heritage crafts that can be sold in hotel boutiques and promoted amongst tourists who appreciate authentic artisan products.

The exhibition will be especially beneficial for hoteliers, architects and interior designers as it shows methods and product possibilities for hotel interiors and product for boutiques.

The collections consist of designer products from Matale consisting of lacquer work, hemp, brassware, Dumbara upholstery, coir flooring and carpets, batik textiles, a wide collection of textiles from the handloom weaving village of Gampaha and Galle stoneware.

The products showcased will provide creative solutions and inspiration that will create a new dimension in the local hotel industry and associated interiors carrying the message ‘Sri Lanka’. The showcase also includes home ware, toiletries, basketry, and other specialty products by the north and east of the country involving over 150 female artisans who are rebuilding in a post-war era.

The handloom weaving project in Gampaha District’s Divulapitiya Division will present a specially-designed collection of hand-woven bed linens, table linen, and textiles. Architects will see possibilities of even designing their own textiles for hospitality and other interiors. Success stories of hotels and projects that have already used these products following last year’s exhibition will also be a special feature at the exhibition.

The exhibition promises to be a rewarding experience and SLDF invites hotel industry professionals, architects and interior designers to become a part of the event on 15 November.
