Variety of colour..

Turquoise, royal blue and lime green songket..all taken yesterday.
Met someone yesterday...she took 2 books and another friend order 20 books in songket cover. That is great but it is chalenging for me because i never do it a lot in one short. First of all, i need to find a red and purple songket. The more colour is the merrier variety. I hope she will like it and appreciate my effort. Its not about the price, but its about passion and pleasure of sewing, stitching and when the idea came over..i don't care!

Kettle's not perfect at all but it mark this is handmade book binding...
Handwoven fabrics, tenun songket is always being a passion for a designer who's appreciate our Malay heritage and culture. Songket is evergreen, wherever you go, songket is the most ultimate beautiful fabric and it ensemble of our Malay Royal. If im not mistaken, certain royal family has their own colour to remark their family. Perak is yellow and sometimes i saw them in light purple or lilac while Pahang is often in green. Well, they can wear any colour, any motif even any types of songket. We have many types such as corak bunga tabur or bunga penuh.
Few years back, i met our fabric specialise cum budayawan, Mak Ungku or Azah Aziz at her residence in PJ to talk about songket. She told me how to preseve songket to make it long last. We can't fold it because it may cause the benang emas damage. The best way is hang it or roll it.
Elastic bend shocking pink..electic!
When we talk about songket too...we can see some couple wear it during their wedding day, for akad nikah ceremony or bertandang and some other reservation.
Songket with pucuk rebung berjuang and bunga tampuk manggis..we have a lot of motif in Malay world such as awan larat, potong wajik, pucuk rebung, bunga cengkih etc...
I have my collection. eventhought it's not expensive but as Malay lady and appreciate the handwoven fabric, i bought it and studied about it. It is special, beautiful and very exclusive on its own way. At least, we must have a piece of it in our wardrobe.
