THE SANCTUARY COLLECTION
September 2014

The outstanding natural beauty of Southeast Asia’s amazing topography serves as the inspiration for our latest Jim Thompson collection. Primeval forests with their lush, verdant foliage, rushing streams and cloud-covered peaks provide a natural Sanctuary of tranquility and beauty for those who seek to escape. Emulating the textures and changing shades of our tropical landscape, we have de? ned and re? ned our fabrics in terms of nature. Before his disappearance in 1967, the popular “Silk King” Jim Thompson often wandered through Thailand’s tropical forests seeking refuge from the demands of his highly successful career. He traveled to remote jungle areas searching for temple ruins and sacred caves. These ancient sanctuaries and their lush surroundings serve as the inspiration for our latest collection. We invite you to create your own Sanctuary with these amazing, nature-inspired fabrics!
