Burgundy Silk Cushion Cover With Gold Celtic Knot on Jim Thompson Silk: You have just found the symbolism of Celtic culture blended with the richness of Thai silk!

This cushion cover is made of a rich 100 percent silk and measure 15 ½ "(39.4 cm) square with the machine embroidered signature of Jim Thompson in the bottom right hand corner. I have chosen a plain rich burgundy, and hand embroidered a Celtic Knot in solid gold silk embroidery floss. These "knots" were symmetrical graphical representations used for decoration by the ancient Celts who finally settled in Ireland. For those of you who are not familiar with this name, "Jim" Thompson was an American business man and adventurer who moved to Thailand and helped revitalize the Thai silk industry in the 1950s and 1960s. His first break was in the design of many of the clothes for the original broadway production of The King and I. He mysteriously disappeared in 1967 in the Malaysian jungle, leaving his original vintage designs for posterity. The last photo shows his former home in Bangkok.

A nylon zipper forms the closure, and to save you the expense of extra shipping, does not include the insert. Dry cleaning or hand washing is recommended.

The 3rd and 4th photos show the cushion co-ordinated with others on my other site (below).
