Delighted. Goods received, beautifully wrapped and looks gorgeous. Beautiful – just perfect as a present.


Just treated myself to a couple of tealight holders to go with the vase I already had from the Pressed flower range. I have other Silkwood crafts and have also bought items as gifts….it’s all so beautiful and such choice! Thank you for speedy delivery….and I love the packing boxes too….everything is so carefully wrapped.


Quick delivery and great customer care

Purple lily wooden lacquer wine holder

Once again superfast delivery and excellent bottle holders. Your customer care is amazing, so thank you very much.

Originally I found your bottle holders on Bath Christmas market several years ago.  This year various friends have landmark birthdays  and I remembered your products and went on the internet to see if I could trace them.  Fortunately I managed to find Silkwood and got in contact.  Very pleased I did.

Beautiful Products.

Having ordered from Silkwood before I decided to take advantage of their sale and choose some presents for friends. For some reason my order wasn’t being accepted and I rang up and spoke to John who was charming and very helpful and got everything sorted with the minimum of fuss and somehow I’m sure I added more to the order! The package arrived very quickly with plenty of padding to protect the items. I was so pleased with the quality of the products and the beautiful boxes the tea light holders came in. I wish I could add pictures but once again technology and the laptop are conspiring against me but I am sure you will be thrilled with anything you order.

Trinket Dish

Lovely trinket dish have purchased from you before.

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


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


Super gifts

Love the items that I have bought so far, will probably buy more very soon, make great gifts

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.

Shiney wood

Just received another order from silkwood,fantastic service,really love the trinket boxes.
Good workmanship,very stylish.

Beautiful coasters, tea light holders and a wine bottle stand arrived very quickly just before Christmas. I am delighted with the items and have returned to buy more in the sale. Thank you.

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.


Excellent customer service!

Once again, a beautiful product which (thanks to excellent packaging) arrived in perfect condition. I appreciated the fact that Joceline took the trouble to call me about the order, and ensured that it arrived on time. Thank you!

Julia J

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.


Trinket boxes and tealight holders

Very good service and sorted out a hiccup in my order because sale stock was disappearing and this is my third purchase for myself and gifts for family.


Incredibly pleased with your response

Thank you so much for replacing the vase and so quickly. We are incredibly pleased with your response. Things go wrong, but its how people respond and put things right that matters. Thank you again.



Have just received my order in record time and am thrilled to bits with my vases and tea light holders! Service in all aspects was excellent and thank you so much John for all your help. Five stars well deserved! Diolch yn fawr iawn – Thank you very much

Ordered a vase for my sister which was lovely, fast delivery, very well packaged so no damage in transit, I also had a lovely note from seller saying that they used to have an aunt zillah, which I thought was sweet, just so you know seller my name actually came from an aunt zillah ??

Gift with a difference

I first bought your lacquerware as a Christmas gift whilst at York Christmas market last year and liked it so much I have used you many times this Christmas.
I especially like the individual tea light holders and the bottle holders. The gifts look expensive but aren’t. Very pleased with this product.

Mrs M

We are absolutely thrilled….

Red metallic wooden lacquer coaster set with matching box with lid.

The parcel has just arrived. Thank you so much for all your help at such a busy time. The vases and the coasters are beautiful. We saw your stall at the Bath Christmas Market last week but didn’t have time to stop then. We are absolutely thrilled and look forward to buying more from you.

Very nice and well made

wooden lacquer trinket pots

The item arrived promptly and was well packaged. Very pleased with the purchase. Item exactly as described. Very nice and well made.

First class service. Wonderful products

I purchased a set of place mats and a single tea light holder. Very fast efficient service. Wonderful products. This is not my first purchase from Silkwood and it certainly won’t be the last. I cannot fault them. Highly recommended

Mrs J

Another beautiful piece

After having bought the Picasso trinket box as a gift and was impressed with the service, quick dispatch, safely wrapped package and the quality of the product.
When I saw the Picasso serving dish in the sale I succumbed and bought it for myself. I couldn’t have been more pleased. The dish is 35cm diameter so really makes a splash of colour. The packaging is worth a mention, the dish itself was in a padded bag made of a soft black material and then it was wrapped in bubble wrap and all that was padded out in the box with recycled (I think) brown paper. Bubble wrap is not friendly to the environment and perhaps this is something Silkwood Traders could address. nonethelessless the packaging was extremely protective. I also bought the stand to display the dish, again a lacquered piece which complements the dish – far more attractive than a plastic one. I’m wondering if I can find room for another piece!

Fantastic wine bottle holder.

I recently bought two wine bottle holders as presents. They were so well packaged and presented that I bought two more. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Thankyou. Mark

Exceptional service.

Our order was lost by the courier. It was for a special occasion. A replacement was sent immediately with a view to getting it to us on time. We cannot speak highly enough of the service provided.
The lacquered bowl we bought is beautiful.

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!

I just want to say thank you very much for sending my order so quickly. I received it this morning. The coasters are very nice my daughter will love them. What wonderful service. I will definitely recommend your company and your products.

Superb Gifts and Service

We first came across Silkwood Traders at the Bath Christmas market some years ago. Unusual gifts, fantastic quality and good price. Have purchased many items to give as gifts as well as having our own selection. Stuck for gift idea, look no further than Silkwood Traders.


More beautiful additions to my home

It so difficult to convey the brilliance of the finish on this lacquerware in website pictures. One must hold them to really appreciate the quality.
When I gaze into the deep deep gloss of the lacquer, I can appreciate the three-month process each item has taken to become that which I am holding. That is not a feeling I get when looking at some mass-produced piece plucked from a shelf full of identical items at a local branch of a homeware store.
I find every piece of lacquerware I buy from Silkwood Traders has its own character. Take vases, for example: Whether a plain black gloss complemented by flowers, twigs or branches, or the stunning beauty of the Picasso collection, each piece is receptive to a versatile embellishment whilst having enough character to stand for itself unadorned. Beautiful!

Went down a treat

Metallic red wooden lacquer wine bottle holder

Been looking for a black vase for ages

Saw the advert for the black vase we had been looking for. Delivery was prompt and we are so pleased with the item.


A very happy customer

Item as described, quick response to refund part of delivery charge, leaving a very happy customer.

Wine bottle balancing holder

This is the second bottle balancing holder I have bought. I’ve had my first one for years and still love it. Apart from being a bit different, the design is beautiful.
I’ve now bought one for a friend after finding the company again, and hopefully they will love it as much as I do. Beautiful and unusual gift.

Margaret B

Fantastic seller

Wooden lacquer wine holders

Fantastic seller. Contacted regarding changing colour of holder, reply was prompt and professional. Wine bottle looks fab in the kitchen. Just what we were looking for. Item also arrived quickly as it was a Valentine’s gift! 5/5!

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.

Beautiful Bowl

I ordered the black pressed flower bowl and matching trinket jar. They arrived very quickly. The bowl comes in a padded drawstring bag to prevent any scratching.

The bowl is stunning, a great (practical) centrepiece, and the jar a nice add on.

Fantastic value for expensive looking pieces. I will certainly be buying these products again for gifts.


Beautiful Easter gifts for the family

I’ve always loved laquerware and the designs of your pieces are truly stunning! I can’t wait for lockdown to be over and Easter to come around so I can see my family and give them these really beautiful gifts.

The Picasso colours are pure summertime and the dragonfly items speak of warm evenings on the patio. Magical!

Service was prompt, everything safely and securely packed – all in all a fantastic service.
Thank you so much!!



Thank you so much for the beautiful tealight holders I bought from you. One is for my friend for Christmas and I am sure she will love it too
They came very well packed and very quickly


Just as expected.

The trinket pot is really eye catching design. I bought it for my very artisitc niece and I am sure she will love it. Not only is it functional it is very attractive, I am very happy with my purchase which I should add came very securely packaged.

Red&black splash

I have just received my order, thanks so much.
Always very quick & efficient delivery.
I just love this particular pattern, some ready for Christmas presents but I know I’ll want to keep some myself.


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.

Miss Marsh

Fell in love!

I originally fell in love with the red lacquered salad bowl when I saw the Silkwoodtrader stall at Bath Christmas Market a few years ago and bought on the spot.
Since then, I have also returned to buy coasters, photoframes and pots.
Im always pleased with the quick efficient service and the quality of the items is second to none.
No complaints whatsoever.

I keep coming back for more…

Tiger's Eye wooden lacquer vases. Available in three sizes, 25cm, 35cm and 45cm.

I am a repeat customer. My most recent purchase – a set of 3 Tiger’s Eye vases of different heights- are truly stunning.
Every item I have ever bought oozes quality and is a credit to those who have handmade these items with the utmost care.
Fantastic collectable items that are practical, look great and are incredibly tactile.
All supported by a great team at Silkwood Traders who clearly care about those in the supply chain and their customers. Thank you!

I returned again to take advantage of the great Sale prices being offered. This time I purchased the green crackled coasters (for me) and two red photo frames (to go with a set of red coasters and the red bowl previously purchased for gifts).
I am very pleased with the speed and quality of these items. The depth of colour is absolutely beautiful – very eye catching.
Previously purchased as a present for christmas was the gorgeous copper bowl. The recipient was overjoyed.
Thank you Silkwood Traders!

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!

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.

Dawn O.

Always extremely good service

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.
I have now added to my little collection via the online store, and again have had great service.
The quality and look of these items is great.

Exquisite Quality and Superb Service

Silkwood Traders always offer superb customer service and their products are exquisite quality & presentation.
Everything I have bought is beautiful and of the highest standard. Plus the items are supplied in wonderful silk gift boxes or soft velvet pouches.
Any minor issues with my deliveries have been addressed courteously and efficiently without any delays.
I just can’t recommend this business enough and I just wish they could supply a wider range of products and have more stocks to sell.
I managed to buy most of my items in the half price January sale which offered even greater value for money.
Well done Silkwood Traders!
