Jim Thompson Silk Cushion Cover- Royal Elephant on Gold: Jim Thompson's cushion cover, "Royal Elephant", is silk screened onto 100 percent Thai silk and measures 15" (38cm) square with the print of a regal elephant on a creamy golden yellow background. The design is printed onto both sides. The cover is closed with a nylon zipper, is hand washable and can be ironed with a cool iron. Though the design is vintage, the cover has never been used. I found it in a craft/antiques bazaar in Chaing Mai and couldn't resist the good luck symbol of an elephant with an up-turned trunk. It bears the Jim Thompson signature. The last photo is of his former home in Bangkok.

"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.

To help you keep down shipping costs, I am offering this cover without the bulky insert.
