Our story

 

 

 

About us

King Silk Art creates 100% handmade Silk Art. A talented artist spent months and sometimes years hand stitching this gorgeous Silk Art. This handmade Silk Art is an entirely natural form of art. No glues, paint or machinery, just silk, vegetable dyes and a needle. Compared to prints and paintings, silk artwork has a nearly 3 dimensions look and very high value. It is a real one-of-a-kind artwork.

Nearly 2200 years ago, the first Emperor of China Qin Shi Huang placed eleven families in Suzhou, China to create handmade Silk Art for the imperial families. A descendant of one of the original families, Forest Qing Zhang, King Silk Art’s founder and President, built our family’s company into a global business.

Forest Zhang paving the 21’st Century Silk Art Road

Forest Qing Zhang began paving the 21’st Century Silk Art Road in 2002, when Forest and his family immigrated to Canada from Suzhou, China.

In 2004, King Silk Art evolved out of Silk Art’s growing local popularity. Our success in Canada brought us to a new location in 2006, California, US.

Silk Art is now growing in popularity worldwide. We introduced Silk Art to Japan in 2007, to the UK in 2008, to the Middle East in 2009 and to Australia in 2011.
