Tourists and locals flock to Jim Thompson stores across Bangkok ; they offer not only the luxurious Thai silk the company is known for but also a collection of furniture and other materials for home decorating.
The multilevel main store in Silom on the corner of Rama IV carries raw material you can purchase by the meter in the company’s signature jewel tones, as well as in modern designs that change every year.
If you just want something small, the shops also stock ties, scarves, handbags, and even stuffed silk elephants.
