Article: "Rumah Tenun", Songket Creation Studio in Jambi

Remember about SONGKET..?! Hand made cloth that a weaver needs 1-3 months to create just one of it. Since a few of traveltojambi.com readers emailed me how to choose and buy songket Jambi then I would like to write this article to help them. But please note that until now I can not help you to be your songket broker, and I am not a songket trader, but if you come here to Jambi and asking me to accompany you it would be different, as long as I have time to do it, it would be my pleasure to help you here in Jambi.

Since 2010 the government of Jambi Province which initiated by wife of the governoor, Mrs. Yusniana HBA, have been opening a formal songket creation studio located in Broni, Telanaipura, Jambi City, named "Rumah Tenun" (House of Weaving Craft). At this building you may find songket being made or you can buy "ready to sell" and "fresh from oven" songket. The building management said that they sell songket of Jambi with best price, and indeed a customer would have best quality and specific pattern which is hard to find and so expensive in the market. Beside as center of songket creation training, "Rumah Tenun" was also dedicated as a provincial promotion center of songket Jambi.
