Our History: Rich in Craftsmanship, Strong in Design

The birth

Once upon a time in 1993, a small wooden furniture company was born in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. And the company was Silkwood Manufacturing.

 

The experience

Silkwood Manufacturing started with a humble workshop and a handful of passionate craftsmen who had a deep love for woodworking. The company's vision was simple yet powerful:

 

"To create exquisite, handcrafted wooden & steel furniture and caskets that would stand the test of time and bring joy to people's lives".

 

In the early years, the Silkwood faced numerous challenges struggling to establish its brand and compete with larger, more established furniture manufacturers.

 

Quality and growth

However, the team at Silkwood had an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship that set them apart. Each piece of product was meticulously designed and expertly crafted, showcasing the company's dedication to excellence.

As time went on, the company's reputation began to grow. Satisfied customers spread the word about the beautiful and durable furniture, and demand soared.

 

Technology and Innovation

Silkwood expanded its operations and invested in state-of-the-art machinery while still maintaining the essence of traditional woodworking techniques.

In the early 2000s, the company ventured into international markets, exporting its furniture to discerning customers in the European Union. Its commitment to sustainable practices, using responsibly sourced wood, earned them accolades and recognition in the industry.

 

Continous Improvement

The company continued to innovate and adapt to changing market trends. They introduced new designs that blended classic elegance with contemporary flair, appealing to a wider audience.

Online Marketing

Silkwood also embraced online platforms and e-commerce, making their furniture accessible to customers worldwide.

Their success was a testament to their unwavering commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction. 

In recent years, the company has expanded its product range beyond traditional wooden furniture. They have diversified into smart furniture with ergonomics and space-saving in mind. Their commitment to environmental stewardship has resonated with customers who value both style and sustainability.
