No.9 Thompson Home, Travel and Fashion Accessories officially launched its first retail location on June 13th earlier this year. Good friends and new retail clientele joined in the celebration! We’re very proud of our “shop within the shop” located at Travadavi in Atlanta, Georgia.
Inspired by Hindu-Buddhist mythology, the Himma Gardens Collection is an imaginary forest filled with exotic plants, mysterious animals and soothing natural scenery. Southeast Asian art abounds with images of this magical location. Temple mural paintings, carvings and statues reveal glimpses of an exotic world.
To create our latest collection the Jim Thompson designers and weavers were inspired by legends of the wondrous Himma garden. In honor of the heavenly skies we have woven cloud-like materials, in praise of crystal clear waters we have created shimmering fabrics and inspired by temple architecture we offer amazing textiles that have texture and form.

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.
