Coastal village with palms, huts on sandy beach, and boats

woman at loom with sample of Songket fabric

Songket is a brocade-like fabric woven in Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.  It is traditionally woven on a part-time basis by girls and older women.  In Malaysia the main production is on the east coast, not far from from the traditional village shown on the postcard.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"


  1. I never heard of Songket before. The finished product looks very beautiful and luxurious.

  2. Beautiful colours, and I like the way this professional is watching. Makes me wonder: what would she be thinking at that moment?

  3. Brocade... beautiful. thank you for joining in this week.

  4. Another trade that is new to me.

  5. A very nice stamp. I hadn't heard of Songket either.

  6. I always like to see stamps dedicated to women's work. This one is very nice.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
