10 Best Sri Lankan Craft Stores On Instagram

Updated: Jun 22, 2021

There's now a plethora of Sri Lankan craft businesses on Instagram that offer various products ranging from greeting cards, scrapbooks, and explosion boxes to customized resin crafts, shadow boxes, string arts, and more. Because of this, it can be tough for new small business that deserve recognition to get noticed among the masses.

So I've taken it upon myself to list down 10 of the best Sri Lankan craft stores I've come across on Instagram as well as some recommended to me by fellow Instalings and Redditers.

Before we get started, please note that the following list does not represent any specific rating order, I merely listed down stores whenever I discovered them.

1. Cardanza @cardanza_

I came across this account pretty recently and I love it! Cardanza mainly offers scrapbooks, memory boxes, and explosion boxes. What I noticed was that they've given a lot of attention to detail, so much so that they've reached perfection in the final product. From the colors and material used to the appearance and quality achieved, their stuff is amazing. Trust me, I am not exaggerating. You can check them out yourself!

2. HUGS @hugs_lk

HUGS specializes in birthday greeting cards. I was really surprised to see that they've got some super Pinterest-worthy stuff to offer. What caught my eye in this store was the range of pop up style cards with professionally cute drawings (yes, I said professionally cute because that's the only way I could think of describing it. The art was really cute but also clean and elegant at same time) they had on display. Oh, and they don't curry favor cutesy things; you can get some dang creepy cards made as well. So if you'd like a custom greeting card done for just about anybody's birthday, HUGS is the store to drop by!

3. Uniqorn @uniqorn.lk

First off, it's uniqorn, not unicorn. Second, will you just look at those crafts? They've got so much going on and I, for sure, would have loads of fun opening one of those scrapbooks up! The Uniqorn Crafts Store can be seen to focus more on explosion boxes, scrapbooks, and shadow boxes. So if you want to keep your clingy lover busy, get him/her one of these. That'll keep them off your back for a good 10 minutes. 10 minutes is a lot of time, if you ask me. You could totally bake some coin biscuits if you're quick enough. I'm, just kidding! But lo and behold, I've successfully veered off topic as usual. Thank you, next.

4. Shining Petals @shining_petals.lk

Shining Petals is a store that specializes in resin art earrings. I simply LOVE all the vibrant designs I've seen in there. At first, I was apprehensive about the use of wild flowers in resin since I've heard they lose color and turn a shade of ugly brown after a while, but when I inquired about it, the creator readily answered with the simple solution she uses. So if you're looking for some trendy earrings to go with any kind bold outfit you've got in mind, Shining Petals is the door to knock on.
