A bib that costs more than RM20

My brother-in-law bought a bib for Tristan from his business trip in Bangkok few months ago. When I asked how much it costs, it came to me as a shock that it actually worth RM26 !!! A piece of cloth that costs as much as a T-Shirt for an adult ?

This is the packaging, a paper envelope with very nice printing :

Searching for "Jim Thompson Thai Silk" online :
Jim Thompson was a former U.S. military intelligence officer who has saved Thailand's vital hand-woven silk industry from extinction in the 1950s & 1960s. Says he: "It disturbed me that production of this wonderful material had stopped." Jim's business has expanded very quickly but he disappeared in 1967, in Cameron Highlands !!! His disappearance has become an unsolved mystery ...

Now back to the bib, it's cute but it came too late, Tristan had started to pull off bib whenever we put them on for him, so this bib would be kept as his first souvenir. Personally I won't buy this for my baby but it may serve as a good gift for bosses' babies, or a Christmas gift, what do you think ?

Hi Bee! That is one adorable bib! I don't even have the chance to put a bib (or even a cap) on my son because he hates the idea of extra things on him. He simply pull it out!

I don't know why some people can buy things that to me is ridiculous cos I am a cheap scape :)

So they never found this guy? How sad, I love the bib and packaging though. After a while he'll stop pulling it off.

Hello Emila :
Great to see you here :)
You sure save some $$ from not using the bib isn't it ? ;o)

Hiya Jami :
In other words, you invest wisely :)

Hey Debo :
Welcome to my blog :)
Sigh, the poor man, after all that he has done ...
Now Tristan doesn't use bib anymore :)

Hey nini :
I'll let Tristan decide whether to sell it or not when he grow older :)

Well, natural response from Jenny, "Sell it on ebay!"
