SONGKET
 
Songket is a technique by which gold or silver threads are woven into the cloth or ikat. It usually comes in two-metre lengths for use as sarongs or long scarves by Balinese women in ceremonies. Patterns range from plain designs of stars and crosses to more intricate ones with botanic and snake motifs.

Antique cloths can also be found, but are rarely in good condition. New songket of various quality are still woven in Klungkung.

Quality is, of course, reflected in the price. If the item is cheap, this means the songket is loosely woven. Remember that the best quality can cost over 3,000, 000 Rupiah.
