About our Artificial Silk Flowers.
There are various grades of artificial silk flowers and to be blunt, some of the cheap end artificial silk flowers, are nothing short of fake and tacky. It is arguable as to whether they should be called “flowers” at all. My wife describes them as an insult to nature.
We are a small family business and before we set up our online silk flower shop, we spent considerable time researching what products were available, levels of quality and of course costs. Many companies use different grades and descriptions to categorize artificial silk flowers. Blah, blah, blah. I am writing the typical marketing spiel, here we go again your probably thinking, they’re going to tell me they’re the best, best quality, best price, best service. Blah, blah , blah.

Modern Artificial Silk Flowers.
Though the terms silk and artificial are used throughout the flower industry, modern flowers are rarely made of silk. Flowers termed silk and artificial are made of several different materials, depending on the desired finished quality. For mass production of modern artificial silk flowers, generally the fabric chosen is polyester. Polyester is easy to manufacture and is amenable to modern glues and dyes. Generally speaking lower cost flowers tend to have plastic stems.
Higher quality artificial silk flowers: can be made of silk, various cottons and rayon. Rayon is very smooth and soft, found commonly in curtains, it has the properties that allow the materials to “drape”. Stems are created using different diameter size wires, to ensure rigidity and stiffness of the stems and leaves. These wires can be wrapped with various materials, though generally florists green dyed paper is used which is quite robust and tear resistant. Stems can be made to look and feel very realistic, for example, we sell silk roses with stems complete the thorns.
