The Mid - 60's

To generate international demand for Thai Silk, Thompson mobilized the interest and support of his friends and contacts in the United States and in Europe. The Thai Silk Company developed a network of representatives in 35 countries worldwide.

By the late 1960's, Thompson's small shop on Surawongse Road could no longer cope with the rate of growth. In early 1967, Thompson built a new shop, a physical embodiment of the significant progress made by the Thai silk industry in the space of 21 years.
