For our Destinations Collection, Jim Thompson has been inspired by the ancient merchants who travelled along the Silk Road. Life for these voyagers was difficult and demanding; it was a test of quality, durability and timelessness. For our Destinations Collection we have created fabrics that are made to stand up to the test of time and durability. These are sophisticated textiles that compliment the stunning selection of patterned fabrics in our Caravans Collection.
This sturdy cotton fabric takes its name from an ancient port in southern Thailand where Arab traders and Indian merchants mingled with the local population. Eight neutral colorways from sandy beige to chocolate brown provide a tempting selection of choices to enhance any setting.

The original reference for this stunning fabric was a hand-knotted, seventeenth century silk carpet from the Ningxia region in China. A majestic dragon is framed by generic borders that traditionally appear in many of China’s decorative arts. The dramatic scale of the design is countered by the sheer amiability of the painting of the dragon, and the slubby linen ground cloth gives interest and texture to the multitude of colours.
