Semasa hayatnya,Allahyarham Datin Seri Endon Mahmud pernah memperjuangkan pemakaian songket.Tujuannya supaya seni warisan bangsa ni tak hilang ditelan zaman.

Tapi yang aku herannya napa para pengeluar songket sekarang ni suka sangat letakkan harga yang di luar kemampuan harga para pengguna di Malaysia ni.

Sebab tu sekarang ni aku rasa ramai orang lebih suka pakai kain tenun atau kain samarinda sebagai samping.

Ni hanya pandangan aku saja.

Malay headdress maker wants to save the art from fading away




By JAYAGANDI JAYARAJ



THE tradition of wearing the Tengkolok or the Malay headdress dates back to the times of the Malay sultanate.


Back then the headdress for men was a status symbol.

Only the rich wore it and more prominently it was part of the royal costume.

There were specially appointed skilled artisans to make Tengkolok for the Sultans in the palace.

The designs and shapes varied from state to state and each shape was folded in semblance of animals or abstract ideas, hence names like Lang Patah Sayap (eagle with broken wings), Ayam Patah Kepak (rooster with broken wings), Dendam Tak Sudah (unfinished business), Gajah Berjuang (elephants fighting) and Menyonsong Again (facing the wind).

Today the Tengkolok remains as part of the royal ensemble.

What the commoners wear are designs with a twist or have been modified from the original designs. They cannot wear the same designs worn by royalties, said Tengkolok maker Nik Hamid Nik Mustafa.

The 54-year-old's interest in the art started off 30 years ago while he was still in Kelantan, dancing for a cultural troop.




Not the same type: the shape of the tengkolok varies from state to state as seen here.


While in the group, we had to make our Tengkolok and that's how it started off.

But there was no one to teach me. The one or two teachers that I discovered later had passed on too.

So what I did was research. When I came down to Kuala Lumpur in 1975, I researched on photographs of various designs and through trial and error worked on getting it right and perfect, said Nik Hamid who is working at the Seri Jemari Songket in Wangsa Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.

Using Songket and other materials including cotton, Nik Hamid is an expert Tengkolok maker who had created headdresses for weddings, royal events and dancers in Istana Budaya. Before the discovery of Songket, Hamid said the Tengkolok was made from Indian materials and Chinese silk while the commoners used ordinary materials.

Tengkoloks were made using Songket only about 200 years ago, he said as he demonstrated how to make a Tengkolok.

Settling on a Dendam Tak Sudah design, Nik Hamid began his folding works expertly as two young learners Nik Haslan Hassan, 20, and Noor Shah Rizal, 21, watched enthusiastically.

The 31 X 31 Songket that Nik Hamid used was earlier starched and folded into two to form a triangle shape with hard collar paper in between before it was ironed and stitched at the sides.

Originally 45 X 45 material was used for Tengkoloks.

With that you begin to fold it to the design that you want. It is not easy as you need to insert the wires at the right fold in order to keep the tengkolok in a particular shape.

You also have to be careful with the needle as it goes through the hard paper. I have had needles go through my fingers many times while stitching.




Young learners: (From right) Nik Haslan and Noor Shah looking at Nik Hamid expertly folding a tengkolok.


Thats why you dont see women making Tengkolok. It requires physical strength too, he said adding that it took him 15 years to perfect his folding skills.

Compared to those days, Nik Hamid said there were more creative Tengkolok designers these days and these Tengkoloks were made to last longer depending on its usage.

In an effort to preserve the art from dying, Nik Hamid is planning on getting a research fund from the Museum and Antiquity department to do a detailed research on the art from state to state.

After which, he planned to produce a demonstration CD on various styles of making the Tengkolok.

Otherwise, this art will slowly fade off, he said.

betul ker diorang kata ader songkek yang mencecah RM 6000...and if so..whut makes it different? workmanship ke....material kerr aper eh? just curious


RM6000? meh aku bagi contoh songket yg harga cecah RM10000





dalam gambar kedua (yg bawah), yg warna hijau tu aa yg rm9800 tu
yg sebelah dia - warna merah tu - sama gak harganya ..

aku sempat aa pegang2 & rasa kain dia .. memang lembut semacam aa
mungkin yg buat mahal sbb kain dia tu kot? ataupun benang2 yg dia guna?
sbb macam colorful sikit kalau banding ngan songket biasa (benang emas/perak)

kalau diorang asyik dok jual songket dengan harga yang sama dengan sebuah kereta,aku percaya industri songket ni akan berkubur tanpa nisan pada satu hari nanti.
