Our Company

Inspired & Inspiring

The Thai Silk Company and the brand Jim Thompson was founded by James H.W. Thompson in 1951 while undertaking the task to revive the Thai silk industry. The “King of Silk” was a man of multiple dimensions: a visionary entrepreneur, a great marketer, an art collector, an aesthete, a man of action and conviction. Above all, he was driven by a great love for Thai people and their rich culture.


The Thai Silk Company continues to be inspired by its founder’s values. The Jim Thompson brand presents fabrics, personal goods and fine Thai cuisine to the world’s most demanding customers, particularly those in search of authenticity, originality, and refinement, who share our aesthetics sensibility, and who are fascinated by the mysteries of the brand and of the region.


The brand is active in fashion, home furnishings, art and cuisine. At our boutiques we offer personal goods like scarves, neckties, women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, accessories, handbags, small goods and finished home products like cushions, tablecloths and more.
