Vintage Jim Thompson Silk Cushion Cover-Grape Vine : is silk screened onto 100 percent Thai silk and measures 15 ½ " square with the print of twisting vines and rich blue-purple grapes on 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 purchased it in Chaing Mai Thailand in a craft/antique bazaar. It bears the Jim Thompson signature.

"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.If you want to know more about this mysterious man, just google him. The last photo is of his former home in Bangkok.

The 4th photo shows how well it co-ordinates with 2 other cushion covers on my site. See http://www.etsy.com/listing/40167858/lacydragonfly-silk-cushion-cover AND http://www.etsy.com/listing/29909463/coral-reef-silk-cushion-cover respectively

To save you money, I'm offering this as a cushion cover, rather than with a bulky cushion inside, which would cost much more to ship to you.
