The Thaishop

The Thai Shop has been operating from 104 High street in Tenterden Kent since the early 1980s. When we took it over in 1993 we inherited over 5 miles of Silk and some blue and white china. With the introduction in 1995 of ready made silk clothes and as a result of the mid 90s recession when fabric wholesaler started selling direct to the public, the whole focus of our business changed.

Since 1995 we have been working with one of the top designers of ladies clothing in Thailand. We now have our own exclusive range of Ladies silk clothing which is exceptional in a number of ways.

First is the quality. Only the finest materials are used. and the clothes are all hand made to the very most exacting standard.
We currently have about 150 different styles of jackets, blouses, skirts, trousers and dresses, which are stocked in five sizes (10-18). Don?t worry if you are not a standard size. We can make it to fit anyone. You can also order any of these in any of the 30+ colours we use at any one time. Further more you can take the embroidery from one piece and have it applied to a different one. Similarly you can change the sleeves and even the neckline. The variations are virtually limitless and just about guarantees that your outfit will be unique.
As our clothes are exclusive there are no identical clothes, with which to make a direct price comparison. We are however entirely confident that you would not be able to find any remotely comparable clothes that did not cost very considerably more than ours.

We go out to Thailand once or twice a year, mainly to see the designer, but while we are there we look for as many "different" things as we can. So we now have a mass of gifts and silk accessories. We also import crocodile and sting ray skin bags. and can even make you a beautiful cashmere coat for under £500.

Above all we are a small family run business with very old fashioned ideas about service. Call us and you will only speak to people who both can and really want to help you pick the ideal outfit. Better still come and see us and enjoy looking at all our fabulous colours with unpushy staff there to help you get exactly what you want.
