Beautiful Silks doesn't have shop assistants. It has experienced textile and business professionals.


Marion Hera-Gorr
Is a self-confessed confirmed silkaholic. She enjoys textiles and garments as an art form, and expresses her feelings for nature and beauty using these wonderful silk fabrics and colour dyes. But why does she get up two hours before dawn to post little bundles of silk to others like herself, who are simply enjoying life and creating beautiful works? 


Peter Lucena
Was trading silk with the Chinese well before Nixon was playing ping-pong with them. With over 40 years' experience in trading textiles with the Chinese, Peter is one of the most knowledgable "China hands" in the textile industry worldwide. Peter has supplied Chinese textiles right around the globe, and knows which of the thousands of factories in China is producing which product, whether a raw material, fabric or finished item at which price. Peter and Janet Lucena own SENTOSA TEXTILES, in Auckland New Zealand, as well as providing valuable input to the Beautiful Silks management team.

Peter is demonstrably Australasia's most senior textiles trader and a proud partner in Beautiful Silks.
