This practice was introduced by the Portuguese and is a popular cottage industry. but is also practiced in other places in the south like Weligama, Dickwella, Matara and Hambantota.Pillow laces and needle point lace are two types of lace that are made, but crochet and thatting are also budding. Complex designs of animals, flowers and trees are woven by hand to create table cloths, table mats, bed-sheet lining, and other clothing items. Although the Portuguese introduced the industry, it has now become Sri Lankan with the use of local motifs.
