Jim Thompson was a legendary designer, probably the best known American to live in Asia until his death, which is still surrounded by mystery. His raw silk designs were colorful and much sought after. Even today, 41 years after his death, Jim Thompson's name and chic style still sells a lifestyle with designs of fabrics, furniture, restaurants, bars, hotels, children's books and cookbooks.
About the designer: The Jim Thompson House website states about the designer,
'With his natural flair for design and color, and driven by his single-minded dedication to reviving the craft, Thompson soon gained worldwide recognition for his success in rebuilding the industry, for generating international demand for Thai silk and for contributing to the growth of the silk industry.
During the Easter weekend in 1967, Thompson disappeared while on holiday with friends in Cameron Highlands, a northern Malaysian resort. An extensive and extended search failed to reveal any clues about his disappearance.'
By then, Thompson had been in Thailand for nearly 22 years.'
