High-quality songket like this costs RM 2,000 to RM 5,000 (US$500 - US$1,250). The stitches are woven in by hand and the thread has metalic elements, so it glitters.

I also inherited from my late mother a 70-year old songket woven with gold thread.It was from Trengganu and at that time she bought it for RM500 and I dont know how much the price now.

RM500 must have been a fortune back then!

70 years back = RM500
2008 = RM5000
