Look at this cute antique child's bolero..I think it's made from songket fabric...it's so beautiful and fragile :). Songket is a handwoven Sumatera's fabric, usually adorned with gold thread.
Look at these gold plated jewelries...I love them...I wish they're real gold and not too expensive :p one can hope, right?? :)
On the exhibition side, this is a typical wedding decoration from Sumatera's area. Very lavish, lots of golds and a lot of good foods :)
On display at the exhibition...some old songket, they're sooooo beautiful and luxurious :). I love the colors. I wish they're mine...oooo I wish :)

Wow everything is just beautiful. Are all weddings that lavish? Just amazing! I love the colors in the 2nd photo. Soo pretty, so soft but not muted. Nice! The songkets are what exactly? Used for? They are so lovely! Thanks so much for sharing all the photos!ReplyDelete
