The jewel like quality that local weavers strived to achieve in Thai silk became a reality more than half a century ago. Beyond the revival of the tradition of handwoven silk in rural communities Jim Thompson’s major contribution was the introduction of modern dyes and dying techniques and the development of yarn treatment to create the flawless brilliance, which brought about the staggering array of “Forbidden Colours” of Jim Thompson silk that we know today.
