If you’ve read the previous post, you’ll know by now that Palembang is famous for pempek. But other than that, songket is another thing that is often associated closely with the city. In fact, the region.
When I was there, I had a chance to visit one of the shop that happens to belong to a friend of my mom. The shop is called Pesona Bari, and is located at Jl. Cek Syeh. Below are some pictures of the shop, and of the songket in the shop. And of some materials that have been embroidered beautifully.
At this point, all I have to say is Daniel Mananta’s brand: Damn! I love Indonesia!
