Sinotex UK Ltd was founded in 1994 as the UK sales office for the Sinotex brand “Arty’s”. Sinotex itself had started in Switzerland in the early 80’s and grew rapidly on the back of the craze for silk painting, mainly in Germany, during the 80’s and early 90’s.
Fully independent since the early noughties, Sinotex is no longer restricted to offering just the Arty’s range and we now distribute IDEEN silk and cotton fabrics and textile blanks, our own scarves and fabrics form China, plus de Witte Engel range for felters and more.
For the past 14 years, Sinotex was the UK agent and distributer for efco creative Gmbh, (see www.efcocreative.com for more details), but during 2017 we felt it was perhaps time to go back to our textile roots and at the end of April 2018 we gave up the efco agency.
“My great grandfather came from Alsace after the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 as a silk merchant, so it must be in the blood.”
Director & owner, William Weil.
Our aim now is to provide an individual service to all our customers and to supply natural, undyed base fabrics, scarves and accessories to silk painters, printers, dyers, designer makers, education and for film and theatre.
We are a B2B supplier only and minimum quantities for both the overall order value and for pack size apply. We only keep limited stocks here at our Reigate premises and where possible we drop-ship to you direct from our supply partner. We will, of course keep you fully informed about delivery during the shipping process.
