Silk By Design has been South Africa’s leading importer of artificial flowers and trees for over 20 years. We have set up a small business system, Silk Sense, for individuals who are sales orientated and want to work for themselves on a full- or part-time basis as a silk flower distributor.
Silk Sense offers risk-averse individuals the opportunity to acquire a business distributorship delivering an excellent financial return on investment while at the same time offering a flexi-time work environment. Stock-holding is minimal. The product has no “sell by” date, is durable and imperishable, and will never become obsolete or out of fashion. Business system and best practices are provided as part of the distributorship package.
The distributorship business is based on the rental of premium quality silk flower arrangements to the corporate and office market and affluent home market. All arrangements are designed for longevity and are mostly set in “artificial water” in top quality vases. Silk Sense has be defining and refining the product range for this market for more than 15 years in South Africa, Europe and Australasia. The floral components of the silk flower arrangements, as well as the containers, are sourced from the best international suppliers while all the arrangements are assembled locally by top floral artists in collaboration with pre-eminent designers ensuring that each piece is in line with to current interior design trends.
The Distributorship Concept
The concept of the distributorship is to rent premium floral arrangements, commonly referred to as “Silks” to corporate clients and affluent home-owners, on a contractual basis, ideally for a minimum of 1 year. Back up service is then provided by exchanging these arrangements on a regular basis providing the customer with “fresh” floral arrangements at all times at a cost far lower than that of real flowers. This allows for the same arrangements to be used in rotation ensuring continual re-usage. They will be rotated by you on a monthly basis for the most part, or more frequently as you or the client may determine. Obviously more frequently is more expensive.
