Where is the best songket store in Palembang?

by YokuMoku Online Now Jan 30, 2005 at 9:40 AM

I am looking for a songket workshop and store in Palembang that makes high-quality songket (gold thread, red color, intricate and beautiful patterns). I would like to see how the weavers make the songket. Please inform me the price range for such quality songket as well. Thank you.

    Please visit http://www.zainalsongket.com they have a store in Palembang but actually they have a butique in Jakarta too. If you live in Jakarta, you can visit their workshop at Kebon Kacang, just behind Grand Hyatt/Indonesia Plaza. Price range is start from Rp 1000K Best Regards, Djoko

    Kinda off topic, but I'd like to mention that fine traditional songket is also made in Pandai Sikat village near Bukittingi in West Sumatra and in the town of Sambas in West Kalimantan - and both are nicer places to visit than Palembang...

    Thank you all for your valuable tips. I happen to stop over in Jakarta for a few hours and will visit PI. So I may have a chance to visit the songket workshop behind PI.
