The Jim Thompson Silk Company is the manufacturer of the finest Thai fabrics. In 2010 it began its collaboration with the Museo del Prado, for which it designed an exclusive collection of products inspired by the works of the Museum. Jim Thompson has taken tradition and reinvented the elegance of Thai fabrics, particularly natural fibres, in a creative model that it applies to items such as this one.

Silk. 25 x 30 cm. Manufactured by Jim Thompson Silk Company.
The quality of El Greco's art is also evident in his use of excellent pigments, such as verdigris or Greek green, which he used to paint the cloaks and tunics of some of the many saints he depicted. This delicate silk bag in an elegant green colour, designed exclusively for the Museo del Prado, is inspired by some of his canvases. Dry clean only.
