Such beautiful products Happy with everything I ordered and such great customer service. Thank you


Beautiful presents

This is not the first time I’ve ordered items from Silkwood but once again have been impressed by the beautiful packaging for the candle holders and photo frames. They’re elegant items and make super presents. I will probably order some more for myself!


Thanks again for your speed and professionalism

Hi, I just wanted to thank you, I was pleasantly surprised to see my package Friday night in my mailbox. Pleased with my order, I gave it to the person who was just as pleased. Thanks again for your speed and professionalism. Sincerely.


Beautiful Gifts

I purchased the black eggshell bottle holder and tealight holder 2 years ago at York Christmas market and I love them both! They are really good quality and look lovely on my dining table. We returned to York last Christmas and my son bought the metallic red bottle holder and I have bought him the tealight holder for Christmas to match. I ordered it 2 days ago and it arrived this morning. Excellent and speedy service!

Really cool talking piece

Speedy delivery, well packaged and fantastic product! Really cool talking piece. When the item originally arrived the silk box in which the item was supposed to be packaged in wasn’t included. I e-mailed the seller and they replied immediately. They apologised for this error and sent out the silk box, which arrived a few days later. Good customer service.


Very pleased with my purchase of several wine bottle holders ….(Xmas presents)…. in different designs. A beautifully made, high quality product. Delivery was prompt and each holder presented in it’s own black bag/sleeve.
….would highly recommend


Fun with household objects

Metallic copper wooden lacquer wine holder

Dear Sirs, last year I ordered wine bottle holders from your company. I use them personally, but I used them also for a short publication about ‘Fun with household objects’. Thank you for your nice design objects. Please have a look at this link: Fun with household objects best regards

Went down a treat

Metallic red wooden lacquer wine bottle holder

Thank you for the two red wine holders. We gave them as Christmas gifts and they went down a treat. We have our eye on the coaster set and another wine holder for a birthday present soon

Absolutely Fabulous

I first saw these wonderful products on Lincoln Market 2019, and soon brought the pressed flower bowl for a friends birthday. It was absolutely beautiful, and everyone I showed it to said the same. She brought me the 5 Tea light holder, again in pressed flower design which again is stunning. I have just brought the single Tea light and photo frame for Christmas and birthday presents for my friend and both are beautiful, in such wonderful protective boxes. Delivery was quick, packaging was fabulous and with the added bonus of a free wine bottle holder just topped my purchase. I would definately recommend these beautiful products for yourself or for presents. You will not be disappointed.

Your products are amazing!

I would have liked to be able to find out the shipping cost before purchase but was pleasantly surprised when I did find out. This is a gift for a friend so I wanted something special. Your products are amazing! I particularly like the Fair-Trade aspect – it’s important to me and my friend.

Fantastic items

I have just ordered 9 items which have all arrived safely for my special friend’s for Christmas. After unpacking my objects was surprised at how beautiful they looked, sometimes when you order on line it can be disappointing. The colours are so vibrant. Thank you so much for making it so easy and quick. I know my friends will enjoy them.

Excellent service

Red and Black Splash wooden lacquer trinket box

Excellent service, arrived promptly and well packaged. Bought item as birthday present but tempted to keep it as it looks really good!! Would recommend and use again.


My tea light holder and set of coasters are absolutely beautiful. I chose the dragonfly design. They came in lovely presentation boxes that are an extra touch that I wasn’t expecting. Packaging was very good as was speed of delivery. My purchase was for a gift but I am sorely tempted to buy something for myself.


So Stunning Red Vases!

Dear Joceline and John, just wanted to thank you both for the excellent service from ordering through to delivery and the speed of the delivery. So pleased to have come across your website by chance as I was looking for some red vases. Really interesting to read the information and to know that your products are made from sustainable sources and by such skilled people. I couldn’t resist buying the red vases, 1 in each size and had originally planned for them to be in a bedroom, but they are so stunning I have them in my living room where they are much admired by all. I will definitely be recommending to friends and family and will be ordering again myself in the future. Many thanks from a very happy and proud owner.

Perfect Christmas Presents

Wow, having purchased a few pieces of lacquered beauty from you at a Christmas market in York a couple of years ago, I took the opportunity to buy some Christmas gifts online as I wanted to support someone other than Amazon!
Everything is absolutely stunning, and arrived in good time. In fact, some pieces, in particular the tigers eye vases are so beautiful I might be giving them a home myself.
Thank you!

Jackie R

Very smart and classy

Dear Silkwood, Thank you! My order arrived today and I’m thrilled.  I wanted it for the windowsill in a newly painted room.  It looks very smart and classy, thinking of ordering a fruit bowl and wine holder next. Love it!  Have also left a positive review on Amazon.

I first came across these some years back at a Christmas market in Birmingham, when I purchased two vase. I later wished that I hade bought a third. My sister who is in Oxfordshire contacted them direct and was hand delivered the said vase just in time for a Christmas gift.
