More than half a century ago, Jim Thompson Fabrics set out to revitalize the art of silk weaving. Today, they are the largest producer of hand-woven fabrics in the world, and their Thai silks have achieved a legendary status within the world of home décor.

The final step is when the fabric becomes reborn in the stunning creation of the internal design groups at Jim Thompson.

Born in America in 1906, Jim Thompson was Ivy League educated and an avid art collector. Working as an architect in New York, Thompson always had an eye for style and beauty, which lead to him becoming the director of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. When World War II broke out Thompson became an officer in the US Army and settled in Thailand after World War II. Thompson was soon captivated by the sights and sounds of his adopted country, and ingrained himself in the culture of the Thai people. He became enamored with Thai woven silk, and this fascination lead to him forming The Thai Silk Company in 1950. Today Jim Thompson’s Thai Silks are world renowned for the luxurious look and distinct quality.
