Sesaths were found in old Sinhalese homes, a mark of the goodwill and wealth the family have amassed. Now a dying tradition, sesaths are now only found as part of religious processions, especially the grand Kandy Perahera.

Woven by a very few families in Sri Lanka’s Matale district (we had quite an adventure tracking these down), it is said that the tradition of sesath making was imported with the Vellidura community that came to Sri Lanka with the first Bodhi sapling.
