Silk Flower FAQ
Here are a few common questions we receive about our silk flowers and the answers to match.
Are Your Fake Flowers Made Out of Silk?
No - "silk" is an industry standard term used to describe many different kinds of fake flowers and plants. Our artificial flowers are usually made of polyester, nylon, PVC, latex and rubber, among other materials. What we use depends on the shape requirements of the flowers or leaves to make them as lifelike and beautiful as possible.
Can I Put Your Artificial Flowers Outside?
While we do carry faux flowers and plants that can be used as outdoor decorations, the silk artificial flowers for sale in our selection are better suited to indoor conditions. We also recommend keeping silk flowers and plants out of areas where they will be in direct sunlight for long periods of time; the sun will cause the material to fade over time.
How Do I Care for Silk Flowers?
While the best silk flowers are designed to last with very little maintenance, it is recommended that you dust them off with a regular feather duster every 3-6 months. Regular dusting will keep your flowers free of debris and looking as vibrant as if they were brand new! Check out our post on how to clean silk flowers for more information.
What Is the Difference Between Artificial Flowers and Silk Flowers?
Artificial and silk flowers refer to the same general type of product – flowers made from man-made materials rather than real, living flowers. However, the difference lies in the specific materials used and the quality of the craftsmanship. All silk flowers are artificial flowers, but not all artificial flowers are silk flowers. The specific terminology used is an indicator of the quality and realism of the flower. Lower-quality artificial flowers are cheaper than their silk counterparts.
Are Silk Flowers More Expensive Than Real?
The price of silk flowers versus real flowers can depend on various factors including the quality of the flowers, the type of blooms and where they're being purchased. In general, high-quality silk flowers can be more expensive than their natural counterparts due to the craftsmanship involved in making them look as realistic as possible. An important point to consider is longevity. Silk flowers can last indefinitely with minimal care, while real flowers will naturally wilt and die.
How Long Do Artificial Silk Flowers Last?
Artificial silk flowers can essentially last a lifetime with the proper care, which is one of the main reasons they're used so often for home decor, weddings and other events where longevity is important.
What Should I Look for When Buying Silk Flowers?
The main goal of a silk flower is to mimic a real one. Look for flowers that have subtle color variations and attention to detail such as veining on leaves and detailed centers. Also, the most realistic silk flowers have stems in a natural shade of green. Check for signs of good craftsmanship like well-attached petals, leaves and stems, as well as color that's been applied evenly and doesn't rub off.
