Patrick Oude Groeniger (director) grows up in the flower shop of his father. They share the passion for the trade. After his education, Patrick wins various (inter)national flower arranging awards. Unfortunately, an allergy briefly puts an end to his dream. However, Patrick heads in a new direction: silk flowers. SILK-KA is a fact.

Meanwhile, SILK-KA has been in business for over 25 years. The passion of yesteryear is still reflected in today’s products. Authenticity and quality are still paramount.

Our teams

SILK-KA employs a large amount of people in various departments. From design and procurement to sales, logistics and finance. With all this combined knowledge and efforts, we make SILK-KA a pleasant business partner and an inspiring work environment.


A team of buyers and designers is constantly traveling across the world, looking for new ideas, materials, colors and products. Based on everything they have seen and experienced, they put together a new collection, with an excellent balance between natural and season silk flowers.

Account Managers

Every season, SILK-KA successfully sells a large variety of silk flowers. To various customers, with equally diverse wishes and requirements. As a customer, you’ll be assigned a permanent account manager and internal support assistant. They know exactly what you need.


SILK-KA has a reputation to live up to in the field of quality, service and supply reliability. In realizing this, the multifunctional warehouse staff is indispensable. They take care of storage, order picking, packing and shipping, so your order is delivered in great condition at the right moment.


Operations would not be possible without financial administration. This department carries out thousands of transactions for the benefit of sales and procurement. And, not unimportantly: they ensure the timely payment of salaries. Through financial internal controlling and frequent reporting, we never lose track of the financial position of our company.


SILK-KA has established a large and international network. Our products are available in over 40 countries at the quality florists, interior retailers and garden centers. But also at well-known international retailers such as Harrods, Printemps and Brown Thomas. Four times a year, you can find us at the renowned tradeshows in Frankfurt and Paris, where we have a huge presence with our latest collections.
