My Serving bowl has just arrived. It is beautiful.
Bought my first bowl and coasters, at Bath Christmas Market.
I love this product.
The service is excellent too. Thank you
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!
I can’t resist, again!
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!
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.
I am very pleased with my purchases. They came well packaged and were of the quality that I associate with Silkwood Traders.

Fast response to her problem
John I am sending you this text to thank you for your service for my daughter Delia for your fast response to her problem. All the people we have given some of your products to have been highly pleased. Your products and service are excellent. Best wishes
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!
I keep coming back for more…
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 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.
Gorgeous 5 candle tea light holder
Hi, Just wanted to say thank you so much for the quick delivery of my gorgeous 5 candle tea light holder with the dragonflies. It looks perfect on my dining room table. Thanks again, kind regards.
Lovely bottle holders
Parcel with 3 bottle holders arrived today. They really are lovely and I am delighted with all of them. Thank you so much for the great service. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
Mrs P G, Taunton
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.
I am amazed at the quality of the little trinket boxes that I purchased for Christmas presents they are beautiful . Service and delivery was quick and website easy to use. Thank you
I purchased the dragonfly pot and it arrived promptly, packaged very very well. Thank you so much! The pot Is stunning. Highly recommend ?
We are absolutely thrilled….
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.
We love our deep plate in the red nebula colour
Just wanted to say what great prompt service and we love our deep plate in the red nebula colour. Can’t believe it’s wood!
Quick delivery and great customer care
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.
Mrs PG, Taunton
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.
A very happy customer
Item as described, quick response to refund part of delivery charge, leaving a very happy customer.
Red splash photo frame
This was a treat for me , as I would normally see you at Bath Christmas Market on my annual shopping trip with my daughter and we had to cancel due to the pandemic. The frame is a stunning addition to my collection. it`s such a pleasure to unwrap such beautiful craftsmanship. As usual it arrived quickly and was well packaged and I couldn`t wait to put it in place
Such beautiful products Happy with everything I ordered and such great customer service. Thank you
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
Package received in good order. Beautiful products very well presented and wrapped. Thank you.
I have bought many beautiful things from Silkwood Traders, which are stunning and family and friends have loved receiving them as well but I would really like to thank John for the excellent service they provide, many thanks. Jill
Wonderful lacquer wine holders!
Wonderful lacquer wine holders! We sent 5 to New Zealand as Christmas presents and all different colours. I can highly recommend them as practical gifts with a laugh attached. Thank you
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!
Very Tactile !!!!
Beautiful work we can’t help but touch it and look at it, Arrived on time and very well packaged. We will buy again.
Just perfect as a present
Delighted. Goods received, beautifully wrapped and looks gorgeous. Beautiful – just perfect as a present.
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.
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!
Splendid work of art
Having been given a gift of a vase and bowl with lid as a present for Christmas, we would like to say what a splendid work of art they are, so lovely to display and were bought we think at Birmingham Xmas market, many thanks
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.
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.
Ordered the Picasso 35cm vase. Arrived earlier than expected. Extremely well packaged. The colours are amazing bought it to add some colour to a room and it more than meets my expectations.
Ordered wine bottle holder, excellent product the wood & finish is amazing & off very high quality, highly recommend this company.
Delivery very prompt I couldn’t believe how quick it came,wonderful service & product
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Excellent Goods and Service
Beautiful items of the highest quality. Highly efficient service and the items arrived the next day very safely packed. Thank you so much Jos and John from a very satisfied customer.
Lovely gifts and prompt service
So pleased with my purchases. I ordered the Ecuador chunky hand crochet scarf , it’s beautiful and so well made. I also ordered the metallic red tealight holder which is the perfect colour. I already have two trinket boxes which again I am so pleased with , they came beautifully packaged too.
Just received another order from silkwood,fantastic service,really love the trinket boxes.
Good workmanship,very stylish.
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.
stunning red and black collection
Bought several items from the red and black collection and they are beautiful. Very well packaged and speedy delivery
Very nice and well made
The item arrived promptly and was well packaged. Very pleased with the purchase. Item exactly as described. Very nice and well made.
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.
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.
Just received my order ,beautifully packaged and amazing quality.Will definitely be placing another order .
Arrived quickly. Well packaged. Absolutely stunning wine holder
Just received my Picasso vase and bottle holder, bought as a present for a close friend….. I have to say, I really want to keep them for myself! Absolutely stunning, beautiful jewel colours, very striking, love the products!
I will be browsing through the website again and purchasing more gifts for Christmas presents.
Definitely recommend, thank you!
Just received my Beautiful vases and bowl
In fab packaging too
I’d recommend these for special presents.
Iv got a few pieces where iv always bought them at Edinburgh Xmas Market
Love love them x x x
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.
I bought my first pieces at York Christmas market and they have been much admired. Not being able to go this year I have order on-line Christmas presents. Prompt and professional service with items arriving in beautiful boxes. Thank you they will make people very happy
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!
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.
A Bright Start to Our Day?
Many thanks, John, to you and your staff for safe receipt of a Pressed Flower Wooden Lacquer Photo frame rec’d superbly packaged today…..a Bright start to our Day?
This will be a gift to a dear friend on a special b’day in Jan next year.
I know she will be thrilled.
My husband has purchased beautiful gifts from you for me in the past when you were at the York Xmas Fair, our introduction to the beauty of Silkwood Traders.
We wish you the Very Best for the future and hope we have the opportunity to see your beautiful wares close up once again.
What wonderful service….
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.
Thank you for my order. My items are for gifts, I am sure the recipients will be delighted as they are lovely, so beautiful!
Thank you, Joceline, for sending the remote control box. It is lovely and blends in perfectly with our red leather Stressless chairs! Very pleased with it.
I ordered five wine bottle holders for Christmas presents and all recipients are delighted with their gift. I also bought one for ourselves as they are beautiful and practical! This is the second time I’ve ordered a number of items, because both products and service are excellent. Thank you Silkwood.
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!
I’ve just received my parcel, and the trinket boxes and wine holder are just beautiful and very well made – I will certainly be ordering more!
Just what I wanted
Hi John My parcel has arrived and is just what I wanted for my friend, thank you so much. Regards
A beautiful item, beautifully presented
I bought the “Dragonfly” trinket box for my sister, I was so enamoured with the beautiful box I bought one for myself with the “Pressed Flower” design Thank you.
Outstanding speed of delivery in robust packaging!
My order of dragon fly tealight holder, bottle holder and coaster set arrived beautifully presented in gift boxes.
The quality of the products themselves is exemplary.
I bought these as a present and will continue to do so for other friends and family. So pleased!
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.
Went down a treat
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
Item arrived before I’d even managed to open the e mail to say it was coming. Very quick.
I just wanted to say that I am absolutely delighted with these beautiful products. They are just stunning. Thank you so much. They arrived so well packaged too. So pleased to have discovered 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.
I’ve just received two trinket boxes which are for Christmas presents. They are beautiful and I’m sure my friends will be thrilled with them. They arrived quickly and carefully packaged.
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
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.
Wow! wow! wow!
Wow! Wow! Wow! Just received tea light holders and bottle holder in the Picasso design. Absolutely fabulous. I have a modern pared back home and these three products on a white tablecloth when entertaining look stunning and expensive. Would definitely order more for presents. Oh by the way, speedy delivery – I am so impressed.
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.
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.
BEAUTIFULLY MADE ITEM
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
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.
Just received a dragonfly tea light holder and bottle holder. They are delightful and so beautifully packaged. Thank you for the prompt delivery. They are almost too good to give away.
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.
Lovely trinket dish have purchased from you before.
Quick service packed well but was disappointed it was in a lovely gift box as before.
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!!
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.
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!
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.
Can’t fault any aspect of my order. Very speedy delivery. So much so that I didn’t understand that Hermes had a delivery for me!! The bowl ordered is beautiful and well packaged. Thank you so much.
Quality of service is tested and your help was first rate
The lid arrived safely today – thank you. We are so pleased to be able to give such a beautifully packed gift to our friends on Saturday. Your service has been excellent; that can be simple when all goes well but when there is a problem then the quality of service is tested and your help was first rate. Thanks again
Fun with household objects
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
Just love the bridge tea light holders
A big thank you John. Just love the bridge tea light holders, they really are made beautifully
