Batik / Songket Centre - KELANTAN

Batik / Songket Centre


Songket, aptly dubbed Malaysia's "cloth of gold", is a proud legacy of the Kelantan and Pattani courts. Only 4km north of Kota Bahru at Kampung Penambang is a "songket" weaving factory. Here silk material is woven with gold and silver thread.Originally the silk material came from Thailand while the gold and silver threads were imported from India .
