Despite closing its Wellington store in early 2014, Silks NZ continues to be New Zealand’s largest importer, wholesaler and online retailer specialising in silk with over 100 shades of Dupion, Powerloom, Taffeta, Georgette and Silk Satins.
Since the early 2000’s Sherazad Silks has been importing and distributing to spec working alongside local and overseas film productions, theatre, television and fashion companies.
Today the company runs all operations from its Christchurch branch. In 2013, the company launched its e-commerce site making it easy and accessible for both trade and the public to purchase stock.
Dr Anoop Bedi opened the first Sherazad Silks retail store in 1986 and moved to Wellington, where it soon became a landmark retail destination for lovers of silk. The Christchurch branch was reopened in 2010 as Silks NZ by Sherazad Silks headed up by Anoop’s daughter Biba.
