Launching our new website
The Ceylon Heritage website is brand new, the pictures shot by the talented Norwegian photographer team Stine Mette Fjerdingstad and Halvdan Jarl Laugerud (stineogjarlen.com). Their mission were to catch the soul of Ceylon Heritage – our employees, their hand knit work, the social intercourse in the knitting centers and the vibrant colors of Sri Lanka. They succeeded. Indeed!
Their second stop was at the Koswatte Knitting Center (K1) in Battaramulla, a suburb of Colombo. Finally they reached our Head Office in Mount Lavinia, the largest suburb of Colombo. For the photoshoot event we had also gathered knitters and centerleaders from other knitting centers, such as Ratmalana Center (R1) in Mt.Lavinia, Ragama Center (R2) in Ragama, a suburb of Colombo, and Kandana Center (K3) in Wattala, another suburb of Colombo.
Stine and Halvdan made the following summary of the project:
“We had a lovely time visiting and doing the photoshoots at the Henupitiya Center, the Koswatte Center and the Head Office in Mount Lavinia. All your employees and staff were so sweet and welcoming. We were amazed to meet all the groups of so happy, social and really skilled artisan knitters!”
