OK that's it. I need an explanation of the whole weaving process from you.

Beautiful colours. Is this ikat weaving?

Thank you! Actually, I think this is called songket (but I'm no traditional textiles expert).

like how you have like 4 different lines in there. Tightly woven foreground, the messy tangly red/yellow/white, the separated blues and the blues behind. Cool colors. Nice.
