I have to admit, when the husband first mentioned that we were to be dressed in matching songket I got a bit scared. Never mind the fact that it can be extremely errm.. colourful to say the least, but I also knew the limitations of a songket fabric. It’s stiff and often itchy and uncomfortable.

Hopefully we will see more of this modern take of the songket. I think it’s quite refreshing and unique… what do you think?
