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.
