Lombok is known for it's unique variation of ikat, the light patterned "songket" textile.
Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It 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. In the weaving process the metallic threads are inserted in between the silk or cotton weft (latitudinal) threads.
The culture and traditional weaving are inherited by their ancestors. Even today, mothers pass down their unique skills to their daughters. They produce beautiful artistic woven cloth which has exclusive design. They use cotton, silk, golden silk and silver yarns material.
