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.
