Although Thailand is the 5th largest producer of silk and world-renowned for its silk craftsmanship. Mulberry is grown mainly in the northern jungles of Thailand. The government actively encourages local farmers to grow mulberry to replace the notorious poppies. This policy seems to have taken effect as Thailand has risen to become a prominent player in the silk trade. Thai silk is bright and saturated. Unlike the luxuriousness of Chinese silk and the elegance of Japanese silk, Thai silk is more simple and abstract. Renowned Thai silk brand Jim Thompson created this cushion. The brand was created by an American designer who immigrated to Bangkok. He trained with many silk masters with decades of experience, perfecting a wide range of skills from extraction and weaving to design and handcraft.
