Name: St. George Gallery
St. George Gallery is a short walk from the Sheraton Hotel and offers a stunning range of carvings, paintings, and textiles. The weavers work on site–and if you can, you should pop in to see the looms these artists work on. The looms are simple–and it’s a little hard to fathom how these men can produce such beautiful and beautifully made textiles. You’ll want to take home the pillows, runners, and a shawl or two. The furniture is stunning, too–but I imagine would be expensive to ship home.
