Introduction

SilkSense is a small business system that specialises in silk flower arrangements across the globe. The business system has been designed for individuals who are sales orientated and want to work for themselves on a full or part-time basis. SilkSense offers individuals the opportunity to acquire a turn-key business distributorship delivering an excellent financial return on investment while at the same time offering a flexi-time work environment.

The Product

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. SilkSense has been defining and refining the product range for this market for more than 20 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. The arrangements are assembled by our 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. A 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.
