CITRA (art in Sinhala) is a pastoral dream that we began to embroider anywhere in the world we visited. A dream made up of tastes, sounds, smells and most of all experiences of recreation, inspiration and love for everything that does us good. We brought all this inspiration into an authentic village in the south coast of Sri Lanka.
