I'm taking a business trip to Bangkok later this year and I would love to bring back some Thai silk. Is there any kind of garment district or section of town known for having fabric shops? Thanks!
If you want to bring back silk items as gifts, another good spot is the Jim Thompson House. Very famous tourist attraction and you should check it out even if you're not planning to buy anything there (look up Jim Thompson on Wikipedia!). It's kind of like a museum with a gift shop in it. They're most famous for their silk scarves.
