Hi All,

I wonder if anyone can help me with any additional information about the attached Baju Songket. I purchased this jacket in Indonesia in the early 1990s. My purchase notes say it is from Jambi in East Sumatra but the National Textile Museum in Kuala Lumpur has a vest with similar green embroidery around the sleeves and neck and it says it is a Persia import. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.
