Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Image

Songket is a symbol of Malay culture. A fabric from brocade family, songket is widely used traditionally in Malaysia during wedding ceremony by brides and grooms. Songket is hand-woven in silk or cotton and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. The metallic threads stand out against the background cloth to create a shimmering effect. Textures on ‘songket’ are always distinct from one to the others; thus resulted in unique textures of colourful fabrics. It is said that a man must at least has a piece of songket in their lifetime.

We are our culture and tradition; if there is no culture or tradition we are no one. Tamerlan A.Kuzgov
