Jim Thompson is famous for reviving the silk industry for the international market but if you have ever been to the small shop near his house and museum you may have been disappointed by the cost of the goods there.
Thankfully the Jim Thomspon Factory Outlet is on hand so you can take home plenty of beautiful silk goods. There are five floors at the factory, with three dedicated to silk and cotton fabrics by the metre, one floor dedicated to home furnishings like cushions, table runners and curtains. The most popular floor is accessories, where you can pick up silk toys for children, smart ties, clothing and picture frames. Getting there is easy. You need to take the BTS to Bang Chak Station and then walk out exit 5 down Sukhumvit Soi 93; the Jim Thompson Factory Outlet is around five minutes’ walk on the left hand side of the street.
Opening Hours: Daily from 09:00 – 18:00
